Now students, researchers, journalists and all the interested
individuals will have better access to the information on the UN
values, global agenda and the UN work in Armenia, as a result of
launching the UN Corner in the Library of the "National Center for
Innovation and Entrepreneurship" within the Ministry of Economy. This
year the Library marks its 50th anniversary.

More than 500 UN publications and multi-media materials were
provided to the newly-opened UN Corner, which will serve to further
educate people on UN values and functioning. The visitors of the
Scientific-Technical Library will also use the UN Corner to organize
UN-related cultural, educational, and other events.

Maria Dotsenko, the UN Department of Public Information Representative
in Armenia, said: "The UN keeps its dialogue with the people
of Armenia, whom it serves. When people know more about UN and
share UN values, they are more eager to engage in UN activities
and become our reliable partners in promotion of UN core values:
human rights, democratic governance, peace and security, sustainable
human development."

"We highly appreciate our cooperation with the UN. Our joint activities
will allow the visitors of our Library to contribute to the work of
UN, and to become better informed and active citizens of our country",
said Sergey Madatyan, the Director the "National Center for Innovation
and Entrepreneurship".

Seven UN Corners already function, four of which in Armenian-Russian
(Slavonic) University, Armenian State Pedagogical University named
after Khachatur Abovyan, the Armenian National Agrarian University,
Armenian State University of Economics, and three outside of Yerevan -
in Stepanavan, Dilijan and Ijevan.
