President's Letters









RESEARCH LINKS

Below is a list of some of the websites, books, periodicals, and other sources that the LEIMUN Secretariat recommends. These resources are in addition to those found in the individual Presidents' Letters. This list is updated periodically.

Besides these resources, you should try to obtain speeches made by your country's representatives and voting records of their activities from a United Nations depository, e.g. the Cleveland Public Library. 

Use GoodSearch.com to conduct your research. Input LEIMUN as the charity and we will earn $.01 for every search that you do.
