Grey Literature Report- A Librarian at Every Table. No. 251.

The latest Grey Literature Report issued by the New York Academy of Medicine Library includes reports by the Alan Guttmacher Institute , the Center for American Progress, and the World Health Organization. The Grey Literature Report is a rich resource issued quarterly.

Of special importance in this issue is the UNICEF study, Childhood Under Threat.
  • There are those who dismiss as utopian the conviction [Convention on the Rights of the Child] that the majority – let alone all – of the world's children could actually experience such a childhood as the ideal that infuses the Convention: one of love, care and protection, in a family environment, with ample scope to survive, grow, develop and participate. UNICEF is not among them. But swift and decisive action is
    required to reduce the poverty that children experience, protect them from armed conflict and support those orphaned or made vulnerable by HIV/AIDS. Every one of us has a role to play in ensuring that every child enjoys a childhood.
Librarians work to identify information that will help humanity regardless of issuing agency. Subscriptions are free to the Grey Literature Report.
