Also included are commercial publications and other non-UN sources held in the collection of the Dag Hammarskjöld Library. The coverage of UNBISnet is from 1979 onward, however, older documents are being added on a regular basis.
UNBISnet provides access to a growing number of full text resources in the six official languages of the UN (Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian and Spanish), including resolutions adopted by the General Assembly, the Economic and Social Council and the Security Council from 1946 onward.
The Yearbook, while "based on official sources, is not an official record." It contains numerous references to primary documents. Often the texts of resolutions and decisions made during a
particular year are included. If the text is not reprinted, sometimes there will be a summary of the document. A separate "Index of Resolutions and Decisions" lists where a text, summary or
discussion of a document may be found. A detailed subject index is included.
It is designed to provide quick access to document symbols/sales numbers for UN materials (1946 onwards). It does not give full bibliographic details nor does it replace existing bibliographic databases (UNBISnet) produced by the Library.
UN-I-QUE focuses upon documents and publications of a recurrent nature: annual/sessional reports of committees/commissions; annual publications; reports periodically/irregularly issued; reports of major conferences; statements in the General Debate, etc. Information within each record is presented in reverse chronological order to facilitate identification of the most recent data.
