Overview of Archives
An informal UNICEF test site






UNICEF online holdings provide documents of historical interest for researchers. Laid side to side the archives roughly span 7,000 miles, or one fourth of the earth's surface, and only a subset is available online. The site does not search UNICEF's Archives database itself, but upon request, records of interest are scanned as searchable PDFs into the database and posted for viewing and downloading. Milestones, in-depth monographs of UNICEF's history and 26 years of UNICEF Annual Reports are also available.

Online Holdings
Online PDF holdings are the result of previous research requests which have been posted and represent only small subset of the information available in the UNICEF archives database.

The postings consist of documents that are either (1) more than 20 years old or (2) publicly accessible at the time of issuance. All PDF documents appear in their original format and have an OCR (Optical Character Recognition) layer and can be searched for key words. Non-PDF references contain lists of boxes, folders or individual items in the archives that can be queried for original paper documents and scanned to be posted on the website as PDFs upon request.
