These databases provide information about and full-text publications of international governments, especially the United Nations. While an increasing amount of U.N. publications are available online, we do have some earlier publications in our collection. Since these U.N. documents are not divided into a separate collection like federal government documents, search Addison to find call numbers and locations.
