United Nations iLibrary is the comprehensive global search, discovery and dissemination platform for digital content created by the United Nations. It provides librarians, information specialists, scholars and policy makers with a single digital destination for accessing publications, journals, data and series published by the United Nations Secretariat and its funds and programs. In the future the platform will also provide access to other resources such as working papers, and statistical databases.

Content is organized by series title, publication year and alphabetically; and discovery of complete publications or even their components - chapters and articles - is a click away. The content is accessible in different formats - PDF and READ - to meet users' needs, whether for reading on a mobile device, sharing with peers via social network or integrating content into a report.

As of March 2020, the UN iLibrary contains 7,870 publications, 116,100 chapters, 7470 articles, 404 series and 3 databases. The publications appear in all official languages of the United Nations: English, French, Spanish, Russian, Chinese and Arabic as well as bilingual and trilingual publications. Every year around 500 new titles are planned to be added to the collection. Approximately 70% of which are in English and they will cover the following topics:
