Intended to provide teachers, students, and the community with general information on the United Nations (UN), this kit contains a compilation of brochures, booklets, fact sheets, resource lists, and press releases on a variety of UN-related topics. The first three booklets, "United Nations Today-1984" (suggestions for speakers), "United Nations Day 24 October,""The United Nations at Forty," and "Report of the Secretary-General on the Work of the Organization" provide an overview based on main points made in annual reports of the organization by Secretary-General Javier Perez de Cuellar. "Come to the UN...It's Your World" provides information for those planning to tour the UN. Four press releases focus on UN headquarters, member states of the United Nations, membership of principal UN organs in 1984, and UN conferences and special observances. Topical issues materials include three booklets, "Human Rights: 50 Questions and Answers about Human Rights and United Nations Activities to Promote Them,""Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Final Authorized Text," and "United Nations Image and Reality: Questions and Answers about Management, Finance, and People." A wall chart containing maps and information about the UN and Namibia precedes a fact sheet listing UN information materials on disarmament (including a list of libraries and information centers receiving UN publications), a list of books and pamphlets about the UN, and information on inquiries that are frequently addressed to the UN Public Inquiries Unit.
