Search Tips

1. Full-text search

Enter the text to search for in the text box

Use "parentheses" to search for the exact phrase
Example:
"Gaza refugee camps"
returns documents containing this phrase, intact

You can use operators AND, OR, NOT
Example:
refugee AND camps AND NOT Gaza
returns documents containing both the word refugee and the word camps, but not the word Gaza

You can use the wildcard *
Example:
Palestin*
Would return documents containing the words Palestine or Palestinian

2. Searches by date of publication, document type, source or subject

Use drop-down menus to further narrow down your search according to document type (e.g. bulletin, letter, resolution) source (e.g. Security Council, General Assembly), symbol and/or subject.

The following expression:
field datedoc > 12/14/2001
Will return documents dated after 14 December 2001
