Missouri State Hosts Only U.N Depository in Missouri


Missouri State University hosts the only United Nations depository in Missouri. Meyer Library displays U.N. material in celebration of the United Nation's 60th anniversary. KSMU's Christy Hendricks has the story.

In celebration of the United Nation's 60th anniversary on October 24th, Meyer Library at Missouri State University has on display U.N. materials.

Missouri State University hosts the only United Nations depository in Missouri.

This means Missouri State serves as a resource for information about the U.N. and its policies.

Ann Fuhrman is the United Nations librarian at Meyer Library at Missouri State.

She says the U.N. depository holds sales publications, the U.N. yearbook and international trade statistics that cover a range of topics from peace keeping to environmental sustainability and literacy.

Ann Fuhrman says several factors helped Missouri State become a U.N. depository in December of 2000.

She says the United Nations works to diminish poverty, stop the spread of HIV/AIDs, and advocates for human rights.

She says, however, that the future of the U.N. looks to be problematic.

In addition to a U.N. display, the Avenue of Flags will also be displayed on the west mall of the Missouri State campus on October 24th.
