United Nations Documents: Sales Publications

A finding aid for UN Documents held in Olin Library,
Prepared by Lynn Thitchener


Sales Publication -- No symbol number

The United Nations produces many reports that are released as sales publications. In general, sales publications are not part of the depository documents however we may have purchased a sales publication separately. These items may or may not include a document symbol number.

Example: This record from Readex AccessUN is for a sales publication with no document symbol number.

Search by title in the Cornell Library Catalog or Worldcat.

The record in the Cornell Library Catalog:

*Note: Request items not held at Cornell via BorrowDirect or Interlibrary Loan.

Search for the title (not the symbol number) in the library catalog or the Worldcat union catalog. Note: If a sales publication also includes a document symbol number, there is a small chance that it was filmed by Readex for the microfiche or microcard collections.

 If the item is not found in a library catalog search AccessUN to see if the document is included in the Readex UN Microcard/Microfiche collection (1946 - 2009).
