UNESCO Digital Library

The UNESCO Digital Library is the repository of UNESCO’s institutional memory and a source of high-quality information on UNESCO activities (in education, natural sciences, social and human sciences, culture, and communication and information), with more than 350,000 documents dating back to 1945. It includes the collections of the UNESCO Library and several related information centers and services in UNESCO’s Field Offices and Institutes, as well as the UNESCO Archives. The essential purpose of the UNESCO Digital Library is to share knowledge and to transmit it to future generations.

The UNESCO Digital Library is constantly enriched with new publications and documents produced by UNESCO, as well as with acquisitions, resources shared by other institutions and donations. Furthermore, new digital materials are produced daily under a major ongoing project “Digitizing our shared UNESCO history”, which allows to preserve and share thousands of collection items, previously unavailable electronically. They will be integrated in the UNESCO Digital Library in the near future.
