Happy Birthday to the United Nations

Today marks the anniversary of the UN Charter’s 1945 entry into force, celebrated since 1948 as United Nations Day. For those of you in NLang_Lang_Concert_Oct15-STINGew York, a celebratory special concert featuring pianist Lang Lang and special guest Sting will take place this evening in the General Assembly Hall.

Here at the University of Georgia School of Law, we have many United Nations resources at our fingertips. The Louis B. Sohn Collection on International Relations includes the personal collection donated by Professor Louis B. Sohn, who worked towards the formation of the United Nations in addition to serving many decades as a law professor at Harvard, Georgia and George Washington. This special collection holds many titles about or by the United Nations.

We also collect United Nations documents on a variety of subjects. These are housed in the Law Library’s basement. Just next door at the Main Library you will also find a United Nations Publications collection  that complements our holdings. Ask a Reference Librarian  for help with any of these materials!
