United Nations: Primary Sources: Dag Hammarskjöld Library Introduces an Upgraded “Member States on the Record” Website

From a Dag Hammarskjöld Library Blog Post:

The new UN Member States on the Record website makes it even easier to find primary source materials related to each Member State’s contribution to the activities and deliberations of the UN.


Powered by the UN Digital Library and Ask DAG, the Library’s knowledge base of frequently asked questions, the new site provides enhanced access to information about Member States’ participation in the General Assembly, the Security Council, the Economic and Social Council, and the Human Rights Council.

For each Member State, the website features:

  • All speeches in principal organs
  • Co-sponsorship of draft resolutions
  • Date of membership with links to associated documents
  • NEW! Notes verbales announcing diplomatic relations between states
