Histoire archivistique

In 1984, a fire in a Central Registry filing room destroyed approximately 740 linear metres of official correspondence subject files. The material mostly dated from 1965 to 1977. A list of the file titles and/or CDU codes of destroyed and damaged files exists and can be consulted on site. UNESCO Archivists have identified possible alternative sources of information for the material that was lost.

Portée et contenu

The collection consists of UNESCO records that were routed to and organized by a centralized Registry Section. The principal and system of classification used by the Registry was Universal Decimal Classification. The collection is further organized into three series based on three chronological periods: 1946-1956; 1957-1966; and 1967 to roughly 1989.
