The Dag Hammarskjöld Library has launched a research tool called UN Member States : On the Record in response to
frequent requests for help in finding out the activities of Member States within the UN. This tool is designed to make
the records more accessible by linking through to existing resources dispersed over a number of weppages on the UN’s website. This promises to be the tool to use if you need answers to any of the following questions: what are the key documents related to a state’s membership in the UN? What statements has the state made before the principal UN organs? Has it sponsored any draft resolutions? Where can I find the periodic reports it has submitted under the Human Rights conventions? And many more. Just find the name of the Member state you are interested in and click!
Many thanks to our colleagues in the Outreach Division of the Dag Hammarskjöld Library for continuing to think up and design new paths to ease our way into the huge number of resources available.
