QUESTION OF PALESTINE

WORKING DOCUMENTATION PREPARED BY THE SECRETARIAT

VOLUME I

REFERENCE LIBRARY ON PALESTINE

INTRODUCTORY NOTE

The Reference Library on Palestine assembled by the Secretariat consists of official documents on this subject. Its purpose is to assist members of Delegations and the Secretariat in their study of the Palestine question.

Although every effort has been made to bring together all official documents, the Reference Library on Palestine can not be regarded at this stage as complete. Certain documents, particularly documents from Arab sources, are not available in the United States and could not be obtained at short notice. Additions to the Library are being made every day, and it is proposed to issue supplements to this document during the course of the present session.

The material available in the Reference Library on Palestine is restricted to documents issued by (a) international organizations; (b) individual Governments; (c) the Arab Higher Committee and its predecessors and the Jewish Agency for Palestine and its predecessors.

The Reference Library on Palestine is located in the Writing Room, Delegates' Lounge at Flushing. It is open to members of Delegations and the Secretariat, from 10:30 a.m. to the close of meetings, and at other times by request. Documents may be consulted in the Library but may not under any circumstances be removed from it.

Included herein are (I) a list of documents contained in the Library, and (II) a subject index to the documents.

ON PALESTINE

This list is a catalogue arranged in chronological order according to the following sources:
II. SUBJECT INDEX TO DOCUMENTS IN THE REFERENCE
LIBRARY ON PALESTINE

The index covers the majority of the documents in the Reference Library on Palestine. Owing to lack of time and to the fact that additional documents are being received almost daily, it has not been possible to prepare an exhaustive subject index. A list of the documents not covered by the index is available in the Library and the Secretariat will endeavour to give every assistance whenever it may be necessary to use such documents as are not indexed.

It is hoped to issue a more comprehensive subject index during the course of the General Assembly.
In a few cases it has not been possible to obtain official copies of documents. Reference has accordingly been made to reproductions or extracts contained in other publications.
