UN Geneva staff have access to the UN Library & Archives Geneva resources and services.
From the Library’s website - and in this guide - you’ll find quick links to the Library’s catalogue Global Search, online resources portal, resource guides, an overview of its history dating back to the League of Nations, and more.
Fill in the Library Account form (Global Search) and a librarian will send your account credentials so that you can log into the catalogue to search the Library’s online and print collections, save catalogue references, borrow books, and use our interlibrary loan services.
You already have access to the majority of the Library’s online resources while on-site through IP address authentication, and remotely through OpenAthens, using your @un.org email address and Unite ID password. In the online resources portal you’ll find a list of databases to which you have access and subject pages such as for eBooks, dictionaries, and news sources. The Library also offers staff personal accounts to resources such as the NYTimes, Economist, Tribune de Genève, PressReader and Browzine.
Contact the Library with your requests, to suggest a resource for acquisition, or to set up a training session (in-person or online) -- and visit the Library in person on the 1st floor of the B building, Monday-Friday, 8.30-17.30.
