Chapter Summary

In order to disseminate information about the United Nations (UN) worldwide and to offer the general public access to UN documents and publications the UN supports a network of currently over 400 libraries in more than 140 countries that are officially designated depository libraries. These libraries maintain collections of official UN documentation and publications and may receive newly issued UN materials on a regular basis. For various reasons, many depository libraries have discontinued receipt of UN documents in print format and now rely on online access to UN documentation via the UN Official Document System.
