We are pleased to announce that the United Nations Digital Library (UNDL) is now available and can be accessed globally free of charge.  A result of the successful collaboration between the Dag Hammarskjöld Library (DHL) at UN Headquarters and the United Nations Office at Geneva Library, the platform uses innovative open source technology to provide access to UN-produced materials in digital format. Content will be added continuously and enhancements to the system will be rolled out on a regular basis. The new system, which offers easy access to UN documents, maps, speeches, voting data, as well as non-sales publications, will help global researchers find the UN information they need, quickly and accurately. It provides one point of access to UN information – current and historical.

Phase 1 of the UNDL incorporates digital content from the databases in UNBISnet and the Official Document System (ODS) - mainly official UN documents, speech and voting records, as well as some maps.  The UNDL will also link to open access UN content.

ANKOS prepared

In the previous four years, with its academic quality, profile of its participants, as well as its setting as an exhibition, ANKOSLink Conference has become the largest library event in the country and in the region. If we look at the numbers, ANKOSLink has succeeded in fashioning itself as a brand born out of libraries, with more than 550 participants and close to 60 firms. It continues to be the right address not only for libraries and librarians, but also for information professionals of all levels, from administrators to students.
