The United Nations has established an arrangement with HeinOnline to make available to the users of the United Nations Audiovisual Library of International Law a collection of scholarly writings to promote a better understanding of international law around the world, particularly in developing countries, which may have limited access to international law libraries. This collection of scholarly writings is provided for educational purposes to complement the treaties, jurisprudence, publications and other documents available in the Research Library. The scholarly writings are also intended to supplement the educational materials on significant legal instruments contained in the Historic Archives as well as the lectures given by eminent international law scholars and practitioners in the Lecture Series.
