Preserving the League of Nations digital archives

In 2017, the UN Library & Archives Geneva launched a project to digitize and provide online access to the League of Nations Archives, part of UNESCO’s Memory of the World, to researchers around the world. Long-term digital preservation of this data (approximately 15million images) is essential and was therefore included in the project concept. We ensured project delivery at scale and under tight pressures, including challenges posed by COVID-19. Consequently, we tightly controlled costs, project’s scalability, and data accessibility. We ensured the files can be accessible as soon as they are ready and even before we developed the final access portal.
