Then Ghaemmaghami addressed the participants on how to retrieve UN documentation and information from UNIC and UN websites and on the Dag Hammarskjold Library’s (DHL) web page during the workshop. As it was requested, she briefed the group about Academic Impact and focused on UNDP among the UN Funds, Programmes and Specialized Agencies as well as Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Students got familiar with the structure of the UN document symbols as well as the structure of a UN resolution. There was also an overview of important information-searching tools located through DHL resources and databases, including the AudioVisual Library of International Law and Official Document System(ODS). The participants also navigated through the UN Treaty Collection webpage. They learnt where to find Glossary of terms relating to Treaty actions as well as a sample convention and it’s status.
Persian copies of the UN Charter, Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the UN System Chart were distributed among participants.
Mr Rahimi Mehr one of the students who organized the programme found the workshop very useful and hoped that the University can have more cooperation with UNIC in near future.
