Description based on: S/1999/648 (7 June 1999). Issued as individual sheets or fascicles (also referred to as Security Council masthead documents or "mimeos") with the U.N. document symbol printed in the masthead area of the front cover sheet. Documents are reproduced, with few exceptions, in the supplements of the Security Council Official Records (SCOR) according to their date of issuance. E.g. S/25041, dated 4 Jan. 1993, can be found in SCOR, 48th Year, Supplement for January, February and March 1993. Documents are available via the United Nations ODS database at http://documents.un.org. Contents, purpose and authorship of individual documents vary greatly, including, among others: draft resolutions; informative letters, notes and reports of the Secretary-General (especially on peacekeeping efforts) as well as reports and notes of other U.N. bodies; letters of governments and of intergovernmental organizations. The latter two may range from highly polemic statements directed against a particular government to factual or legal information of importance to the international community, such as the full text of recently concluded international agreements. Also cited as: U.N. Doc. S/, or UN mimeo doc S/. U.N. document symbol: S/[number], 1946-1993 (e.g. S/26928); S/[calendar year]/[number], from 1994- (e.g. S/1994/1).
