With more than 14 million pages digitized, the archives of the League of Nations, the UN in Geneva and the peace conferences, not to mention private archives including those of the Association of International Journalists, the UN Library and Archives has taken on a very large project. The goal was to enlighten a worldwide community of journalists, researchers and students on the diplomacy of the interwar period and all that followed. Blandine Blukacs-Louisfert, the head of the Institutional Memory Section of the UN Library and Archives - who supervised the LONTAD project - tells us about this impressive digitization project.
We would like to congratulate the LONTAD team on this incredible work. On the basis of these digitized documents, the editorial staff of geneveMonde.ch, assisted by the audiovisual production team of La Souris Verte, has produced a series of five videos using rare documents of the League of Nations with the team of Blandine Blukacs-Louisfert. A series that allows us to learn more about the Geneva locations used for the conferences and assemblies of the League of Nations, about the often poorly known activities of the organization (the global regulation of the drug or food market) or about the real innovations of a nascent League of Nations.
