Library of International Law. The Audiovisual Library is a
unique, multimedia resource which provides the United Nations
with the unprecedented capacity to provide high quality
international law training and research materials to an
unlimited number of recipients on a global level.

The Audiovisual Library consists of three pillars: (1) the
Historic Archives containing documents and audiovisual
materials relating to the negotiation and adoption of
significant legal instruments under the auspices of the
United Nations and related agencies since 1945;
(2) theLecture Series featuring a permanent collection of
lectures on virtually every subject of international law
given by leading international law scholars and practitioners
from different countries and legal systems; and
(3) theResearch Library providing an on-line international
law library with links to treaties, jurisprudence, publications
and documents, scholarly writings and research guides.

The Audiovisual Library is available to all individuals and
institutions around the world for free via the Internet.
