The Library has been a United Nations Depository Library since 1975. As a full depository the Library receives copies of all documents produced by the principal organs of the United Nations: the General Assembly, the Economic and Social Council, the Security Council, the Secretariat, and the Trusteeship Council. The Library also receives copies of United Nations 'sales publications' — more substantial monographs and reports produced by the United Nations or its agencies.
