To celebrate the 75th anniversary of the United Nations, the Dag Hammarskjöld Library is presenting an exploration of 75 key documents that have shaped the United Nations and our world.
The documents selected honour the historic breadth of the Organization’s work in the areas of peace and security, humanitarian assistance, development and human rights.
Monmouth University is participating in the United Nations in the Academic Impact program, which engages colleges and universities to actively support UN principles in areas of human rights, literacy, sustainability and conflict resolution.

The Dag Hammarskjöld Library has announced a new research tool: UN Member States : On the Record. It links to selected UN databases, websites, and other information resources 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 UN Libraries and other Secretariat departments. 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.
