LONTAD: Total Digital Access to the League of Nations Archives

At the end of October 2022, the Total Digital Access to the League of Nations Project (LONTAD) completed its core operations. On time and on budget after five years, the entirety of League of Nations archives was digitized and made freely available (14.2 million pages of materials). The project was the culmination of the effort of more than 30 people working during its duration on a multitude of archival and technical activities. In addition to the “basic” scanning, the project restored and preserved the original documents, including replacing more than 8,000 boxes. The long-term digital preservation of more that 220 terabytes of data that were generated during its work was also ensured, guaranteeing online digital access long into the future.

The documents are available on the UN Archives Geneva platform.
