About Library and Archives

The Library’s unique collections date back to the League of Nations, including some rare materials from the pre-League period.

The UNOG Library is placed directly under the purview of the UNOG Director-General and its mandate is to perform three core functions:

As the United Nations European Library, the Library

  • supports the documentary and informational needs of library users
  • manages the UNOG Library’s heritage of valuable collections
  • processes and extracts information from its collections for inclusion in databases and publications

As coordinator of the UNOG Archives, the Library
  • establishes archival policies for UNO
  • manages UNOG Registry and administrative records
  • manages UNOG and League of Nations historical archives, as well as the League of Nations Museum

As coordinator of UNOG Cultural activities, the Library
  • coordinates the policy, implements the programme developed in the context of the Global Agenda for Dialogue among Civilizations, and chairs the UNOG Cultural Activities Committee.
