The Project team is proud to announce that, despite the recent challenges posed by COVID-19, they have reached an important milestone and have passed 10 million pages scanned, approximately two-thirds of the entire collection!
The Total Digital Access to the League of Nations Archives Project (LONTAD) will ensure state-of-the-art free online access and the digital and physical preservation of approximately 15 million pages, or almost three linear kilometers, the entirety of the archives of the League of Nations (1920-1946), the first global intergovernmental organization aiming to establish international peace and cooperation, and the predecessor of the United Nations. The LONTAD project is made possible through a generous donation of a private Swiss foundation.
Research guides relating to the League of Nations Archive are also available.
The Scottish Working Forum on Official Publications held its AGM on 17 November 2021. We were delighted to welcome Philip Abraham, Research Librarian at the House of Commons Library, who gave a fascinating talk on the challenges of keeping the collection and library space relevant today.
The talk is available at the following link: Philip Abraham – SWOP AGM – 17 November.
OECD iLibrary’s content offering has just been enhanced with the addition of OECD Podcasts.
As the one-stop research repository for all OECD publications in a range of formats, the platform now contains interviews with experts and personalities from both within and outside the Organisation, as they discuss the key policy issues of the day.
Guests include current and former Prime Ministers from around the world, such as Jacinda Ardern, Gordon Brown and Laurent Fabius, each respectively talking about well-being, taxation and the environment, OECD Directors Laurence Boone and Andreas Schleicher on the economy and education, and comedian, Ruby Wax, on the not-so-funny matter of mental health.
The collection has more than 70 podcasts, available to stream online, or, exclusively for subscribers, to download as an MP3 file for listening at leisure. New episodes appear regularly, each accompanied by a complete transcript in PDF, and like all titles on OECD iLibrary, these will be fully indexed by the major discovery services, such as EBSCO EDS, Ex Libris Primo, OCLC WDS and ProQuest Summon.
You can access the OECD ilibrary and listen to these podcasts via the National Library’s Digital Collections. The Library offers free online access to thousands of books, journals, newspapers and databases, if your main address is in Scotland and you join the Library.

The predecessor to the United Nations, the League of Nations was established in 1919, after World War I, under the Treaty of Versailles “to promote international cooperation and to achieve peace and security.” It was disbanded in 1940 due to its powerlessness to prevent conflict.
The National Library of Scotland have digitized a selection of League of Nations documents which are all freely available. Until recently relatively few documents at all had been digitised, so this is a welcome resource for researchers from many disciplines.
