UNOPS supports the successful implementation of its partners’ peacebuilding, humanitarian and development projects around the world. Our mission is to serve people in need by expanding the ability of the United Nations, governments and other partners to manage projects, infrastructure and procurement in a sustainable and efficient manner.

UNOPS is providing support to the UNOG Library’s Total Digital Access to he League of Nations Archives Project (LONTAD), through the provision of services, which includes procurement and personnel support. This project addresses the League of Nations Archives collection managed by the United Nations Office at Geneva, consisting of the digitization for a subsequent provision of online access to the complete records of the League of Nations during its existence from 1919 to 1946, including approximately 3 linear kilometres or 15,000,000 pages of materials and thousands of maps. While the inherent value of the original materials necessitates provisions for their long-term physical care, digitization can contribute to the overall preservation of the collections to ensure that people from around the globe can discover, use, and learn from these important records.
