Graduate students navigate the UN online

On 25 February, the United Nations Information Centre (UNIC) helped some 16 graduate students of international relations from the University of Tehran, Faculty of law and political science to broaden their knowledge of the UN.

UNIC Reference Assistant Nazanin Ghaemmaghami addressed them on how to retrieve UN documentation and information from UN and UNIC websites and on the Dag Hammarskjold Library’s (DHL) web page during a workshop at the UN Conference Room in Tehran.

Ms. Ghaemmaghami elaborated on basic UN facts and gave an overview of important information-searching tools located through DHL resources and databases, including the United Nations Bibliographic Information System, Official Document System and UN Info Quest as well as press releases and the UN Yearbook.

Persian copies of the UN Charter, Universal Declaration of Human Rights and United Nations Today were also distributed among participants of the four-hour workshop.
