The ICRC archives collect and preserve ICRC documents dating from the organization's inception to the present day, and make them available for research. The ICRC's historical archives comprise 6,700 linear metres of textual records and a collection of photographs, films and other audio archives.
To mark the 150th anniversary of the First Geneva Convention, the Swiss National Library, in collaboration with the ICRC library, has digitised many original images and recordings. These are presented on the websites of the Swiss National Library and the ICRC and you can use them in your work.
The public reading room is open, by appointment, from 8.30 a.m. to 4.30 p.m., Monday to Friday.
You can use digital cameras and laptops in the ICRC archives reading room as long as you don’t disturb other readers. Scanners are forbidden.
