Since OHCHR moved from the Palais de Nations to the Palais Wilson in 1998, the absence of a specialized documentation centre has been acutely felt as the Library in the Palais des Nations was not as easily accessible to the staff. A documentation centre was needed “to support the research and information needs of the High Commissioner, the experts, special rapporteurs and treaty body members who rely on the Office for substantive assistance, or even its own staff.” The proposed Documentation Centre was intended to complement rather than duplicate UNOG Library holdings. By June 2003, the Library had become fully operational and was officially opened to the public on 10 December 2003. In 2018, to reflect the multitude and diversity of resources and services provided by the Library, it has been renamed into Library and Human Rights Gateway.

The Library and Human Rights Gateway is the main access point to information and research on human rights and relevant work of the United Nations. The resources include: Books and multimedia items; Human rights resolutions voting database; Online databases and journals; Online research guides, such as Human Rights Timeline, UDHR for Children and International Commissions of Inquiry (CoIs) and Fact-Finding Missions; Human Rights Education and Training Resource Collection and Database; Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) Resource Collection and UDHR translations.
