Questions about the General Assembly? Ask DAG!

Thursday, 21 September 2017

Where can I find voting information for resolutions? What are the opening dates of the General Assembly sessions? Where can I get the electronic version of the "Delegates' Handbook"? Did the General Assembly ever consider UFOs?

Answers to these questions and many more are available via the Dag Hammarskjöld Library’s Ask DAG service.

You can browse almost 700 frequently asked questions and find answers about all things UN, including over 300 FAQs related to the work of the General Assembly. If you can’t find what you are looking for, you can submit your question and a librarian will usually get back to you within an hour with an answer.

Browsing the Ask DAG questions is also a good way to learn more about the Organization, especially if you are new to the UN. You might find answers to questions you didn’t even know you had! (If you’re still wondering about the UFO question for example, you can find the answer here)

The Library also offers a specialized 2 ½ hour training course - in English or French - to help staff and delegates in New York navigate the vast number of documents issued for the General Assembly. You can sign up here.
