The United Nations Library & Archives Geneva is pleased to announce the launch of the new UN Archives Geneva Platform.


This new online platform makes it easier to navigate and search approximately 10 linear kilometers of archives managed by the UN Library & Archives Geneva, including different fonds such as 19th century peace movements, the League of Nations, UN Geneva, and additional UN entities based in Geneva.


Thanks to the LONTAD project, the platform provides access to over 10 million digitized pages of the League of Nations archives. By 2022, the entirety of the archives of the League of Nations will be available online (including photographs and maps). 


The launch of the platform enables researchers to search exceptional primary sources. It also opens new ways of conducting research in the archives. More information is available here.


With the new platform, we are now offering free tailored online presentations and trainings for researchers and students to explain the structure of the UN archives in Geneva, how the platform works, the material available online and the documents which are still not digitized but available for consultation in site. These presentations can be provided for faculty meetings, seminars and courses, or whatever setting is desirable. Catering to your needs, our specialists can present the wealth of archival documents – digitized and physical – available at the UN Library & Archives Geneva, explain how to use the platform, and show the work of the Institutional Memory Section.
