UNIC Reference Library’s collection was transferred to the National Library and Archives of the Islamic Republic of Iran located in Tehran (Haghani Highway, next to Haghani underground station) at the end of 2012.
A selection of UN information materials is still available in the Centre and the Reference Assistant is at the service of the UN researchers and students with this small collection and through the UN website and databases to find UN information and documentation. She also holds workshops for different groups of UN researchers in the UN building or universities, government offices, NGOs, etc. to familiarize them with the UN information and documentation.
