United Nations Yearbook

For anyone who has been in an United Nations Depository (like CU-Boulder), you have probably seen the rows of red books, with UN Yearbook stamped on the spine. If you have been doing research on the actions of the members of the UN or particular resolutions it is probable that you have even used these books with their tiny type. Well, now you don't need to be in the library to use these wonderful resource, the United Nations has digitized them from 1946-2005. (Note: 2005 is the most recent edition, it takes 3-4 years to write one of these volumes.)

The United Nations Yearbook online lets you search across all the yearbooks or just one. You can also browse the volumes. You will find in here the work done by various countries to modify resolutions before the United Nations. Want to know who voted which way? You can find it here. When researching the UN and how it works this is one of the best source of information.
