New Tool to Track Member State Activities at the United Nations

The United Nations Dag Hammarkjöld Library has launched a new research tool called UN Member States on the Record:

"It provides links to selected UN databases, websites, and other information resources, in order to make the record of Member States' activities at the UN more accessible."

"Information available for each Member State includes: the key documents related to its membership in the UN; statements made before the principal organs; draft resolutions sponsored; periodic reports submitted on Human Rights conventions, and more. "

"Running behind this new research tool are pre-set searches on multiple databases maintained by the Dag Hammarkjöld Library. A single click links to the most accurate, up-to date results, and yet also includes extensive historic coverage. Full text documents are linked in all official languages of the UN."

"Based on frequently asked questions, the Dag Hammarkjöld Library developed this tool to highlight the work and actions of each individual Member State and to consolidate information scattered in multiple databases to one user-friendly resource. This opens the rich primary research resource of UN documents to anyone who can browse the web."
Here is the results page for Canada.
