UN Documentation: How to Find UN Documents

Find Resolutions by Document Number or Symbol

If you know the number of a resolution, e.g. General Assembly resolution 62/24, you can locate it by accessing the UNBISnet. To search for the resolution, you will need to build a UN document symbol:

  • General Assembly resolutions place A/RES/ before the resolution number
    • A/RES/62/24
  • For Security Council resolutions place S/RES/ before the resolution number
    • S/RES/1801

Find Resolutions by Title

You can search for Resolutions on UNBISnet by using words that appear in the Title, e.g. "Multilingualism". You will be able to access all documents pertaining to your chosen Title and select a particular Resolution from the list.
