Register for Training session on “Using the Yearbook of the United Nations online,” Tuesday, 10 September, at 11:00a.m., Room L-133 (DHL) 

The Department of Global Communications will offer a 1½ hour training session on using the electronic version of the UN flagship publication Yearbook of the United Nations.

The session, presented by the Outreach Division’s Publications and Editorial Section, in collaboration with the Dag Hammarskjöld Library, will introduce the Yearbook website to staff of permanent missions and permanent observer missions to the United Nations, as well as UN staff. Members of the Yearbook editorial team will showcase the utility of this premier reference work through a demonstration of the advanced search and browse functions available on the website. Participants will have access to computer stations for a guided, hands-on experience. They will gain skills and knowledge allowing them to navigate the 68 volumes of the Yearbook, covering the work of the UN system from 1946 to 2014, and make use of the publication’s trove of background information in addressing today’s most pressing issues.
