Q&A: Finding the sources of United Nations documents
Submitted by email@example.com on Tue, 03/03/2009 - 08:43.
The best approach for all United Nations documents and citations is to check them on the Dag Hammarskjöld Library web site, also known as UNBISNET. You can search documents by title, or browse them by title or "document symbol", which is the standard UN document number, in this case: A/RES/2200. Browsing the title: International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights, etc. and knowing that the date was around 1966, we find this full citation. Note that it's part of the volume called: Resolutions adopted by the General Assembly during its 21st session. 20 September-20 December 1966. - A/6316. - 1967. - p. 49-60. - (GAOR 21st sess., Suppl. no. 16), and the abbreviation GAOR stands for General Assembly Official Records, and it's part of the Supplements volumes, and is no. 16. Note the the UNBISNET citation gives you pdf links to several language versions of the document, including that English version you found at UN.org.
