Where can I find League of Nations documents and publications?
Last Updated: Apr 26, 2018
The League of Nations was housed in Geneva in the Palais des Nations. As a result, the UN Office at Geneva, housed in the Palais des Nations, continues to hold the League of Nations Archives. They have produced a resource guide on League of Nations Archives.
The Libraries in New York and Geneva have the documents and publications of the League of Nations. Many documents of the League were reproduced in the Official Journal.
- League of Nations Official Journal (from HeinOnline; UN Headquarters only)
- Enterprise Search - League of Nations archives (select LON from the drop down menu of the search box)
- League of Nations Treaty Series (from the UN Treaty Collection)
- League of Nations Statistical and Disarmament Documents (from Northwestern University; freely available)
- Aufricht, H., Guide to League of Nations Publications: a Bibliographical Survey of the Work of the League, 1920-1947, New York, Columbia University Press, 1951.
Further information can also be found on the League of Nations research guide from Peace Palace Library.
