This is the UNESCO Archives homepage for AtoM, our archival description catalogue. PLEASE NOTE: the site is currently under maintenance as we upgrade to a newer version of AtoM.
Please note that the application is still under construction and new descriptions, information, tools and search options are added continuously.
At present, the holdings of the UNESCO Archives are described on a very general level. The description gives a general overview of the records which are preserved in the UNESCO Archives and how they are organized.
For practical reasons, the archives are organized in 16 Archive Groups. To access the list of Archive Groups and their descriptions, please click here. For the moment, we recommend that you navigate through the catalogue by using this list. Searching by keyword will give results that are not necessarily sorted by pertinence.
ICA-AtoM is a fully web-based archival description application that is based on International Council on Archives (ICA) standards. AtoM is an acronymn for Access to Memory. See the online documentation to learn more about using the software.
