This guide includes all of our training resources in one location so that you can learn in your own time and in your own way with recorded videos of our webinars in English, French and Spanish.
Introduction to UN Documents: This is a web recording of our popular Introduction to UN Documentation training webinar. Intended for people new to UN Documentation and unfamiliar with the UN Digital Library, this one hour recorded webinar will teach you about UN documents and how to find them using the UN Digital Library. Recorded in the Summer of 2020.
Navigating UN Documents: Part I: This webinar was presented to a group of Government Information Librarians in April 2020. The content in this webinar is similar to that of the Introduction to UN Documents Webinar; however, it is geared to an audience of librarians rather than UN Staff and delegates. The start of this webinar has more information about the UN in general and the end of the webinar goes into greater detail about other research products at the UN. A good introduction for librarians, researchers and students new to the UN.
The Dag Hammarskjöld Library has created an interactive quiz, available in English, French and Spanish, allows you to test your knowledge. The first few questions relate to UN Documentation in general, while the second half of the quiz involves using the UN Digital Library to answer some basic questions.
