Research Guides

To make searching the archives of the United Nations as easy as possible we provide an online  search engine, conventional finding aids, and research guides on specific topics.

  • Our search engine allows for you to conduct keyword searches, with optional date and collection parameters
  • Finding aids give an overview of each archival collection, along with a listing of every series and folder contained with in it, and
  • Research guides dive deeper into subjects, linking to various records held by the United Nations, as well as linking to outside resources. 


Links to the Finding Aids are currently being updated. For further information, please e-mail us at
