INIS and IAEA Library Restructuring

Early January 2012, the Director General of the IAEA approved an overall restructuring of the Department of Nuclear Energy (NE). This included establishing a separate Nuclear Knowledge Management Section and creating the Nuclear Information Section (NIS).

The newly created Nuclear Information Section consists of:

  • The INIS Unit
  • The IAEA Library Unit
  • The Systems Development and Support Group

This restructuring and the creation of the NIS provides an opportunity for further enhancing existing information products and services, and introducing new ones — all with an eye towards advancing higher organizational efficiency and effectiveness.

The Content Management Group, the Database Production and Imaging Group, and the Capacity Building and Liaison Group have all been combined to create one single, monolith INIS Unit. Ms. Taghrid Atieh is the new Head of the INIS Unit, Ms. Daw Ah Win is the Head of the IAEA Library Unit and Mr. Domenico Pistillo is the Acting Systems Development and Support Group Leader. Mr. Dobrica Savic is the Head of the Nuclear Information Section.
