Prepared by the Dag Hammarskjöld Library

In 1998, the DHL initiated a programme to digitize all language editions of United Nations parliamentary documents issued from 1946 to1992 for inclusion in the United Nations Official Document System (ODS).

As part of this programme and to mark the occasion of the Millennium Assembly,  the Dag Hammarskjöld Library has posted these selected landmark documents.

This digitization project is one of many conducted by the Dag Hammarskjold Library in its continuing efforts to improve multilingual, electronic access to the documentation of the United Nations Organization.
