State of Digitization of United Nations Documents


This text from would have been nice to have a little while ago when I needed to find some obscure United Nations report.

It is called The State of Digitization of United Nations Documents by Lyonette “Lyo” Louis-Jacques, Foreign and International Law Librarian and Lecturer in Law at the University of Chicago Law School D’Angelo Law Library:
"Almost two decades have passed since the United Nations began digitizing its documents. The UN started the Official Document System (ODS) as a pilot project in 1992, and officially launched it in 1993. Since then, there has been an explosion of UN documents and publications available in electronic format from a variety of sources, for free and via subscription. I recently checked the current status of UN documentation online, and here’s what I found. And what I expected to find, and didn’t. And some worrisome developments."
