The United Nations just launched its new iLibrary, described as a “comprehensive global search, discovery, and dissemination platform for digital content created by the United Nations.”
Although much UN content is currently available at different UN sites, this provides a one-stop shop to access these materials and is optimized for use on both desktop and mobile devices. Access to the content is free; however, downloading documents requires a subscription.
The UN iLibrary currently comprises 750 titles in English, and 250 in other official languages of the United Nations. The UN expects the total number of titles to grow to 3000 by the end of 2016, with the addition of approximately 500 new titles added yearly on the key topics reflecting the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) adopted by the United Nations.
