About Us

Since its founding, written words have been central to articulating the aspirations of the United Nations. On 24 October 1945, the founding members of the United Nations signed a Charter, giving the Organization its framework. Since then the Charter has been published in many languages, along with countless other documents, reports, and titles.

United Nations Publications brings together all these publications in one place. We are the source for over 5,300 titles produced by the Organization and its key agencies. This website offers on-line access to our complete catalogue, in a range of formats including print, electronic and multimedia. In addition, we work with 90 sales agents in 61 countries to facilitate distribution of all our titles.

Every year, we attend key trade shows and conferences to promote our main titles, and new releases. At the UN Headquarters in New York and the UN Office in Geneva, we operate Bookshops to browse our publications at your leisure. Every year our catalogue grows with the publication of many new titles, the release of recurrent publications, and the addition of new on-line products. These titles, like the Charter before, reflect the many facets of the Organization as it works for a better world for all.
