Ideas wanted for the UN Library & Archives

(Via Hermine Diebolt and @UNOGLibrary)

We have a challenge for our research community! The United Nations Office at Geneva Library & Archives received approx. 8000 index cards from United Nations, concerning the files temporarily sent from the League Of Nations archives in the 1940s & 1950s.

These index cards may be an invaluable source for researchers: They show the relevance of the League Of Nations during the formative years of the UN. The index cards are in the process of being digitized & will be available online at

How can these archives be used for research? A paper, shedding light on the transition from the League to the UN? A project in #digitalhumanities? Share your ideas for research projects with us!
