Resource and documentation Centre
A documentation and information Center, based at the International Environment House 1, is open to the public on weekdays from 9:00-17:00. A librarian is available at these times to respond to requests and to assist users.
The GEN Library contains books and periodicals on chemicals, endangered species, hazardous wastes, climate change, desertification, human settlements, Agenda 21, and more. Display shelves in the main area exhibit GEN member publications and direct users to other organizations’ information resources. An online catalogue allows users to search the GEN library via Internet, and a links page highlights other Geneva area libraries with environmental collections, including their on-line catalogues.
Various PC terminals for research and education on environmental issues are available. Upon request, users may obtain access to official documents stored on the United Nations Official Documents System (ODS).
