United Nations: Collections held in Bodleian relating to UN

Papers in the Bodleian

The Bodleian Library holds one of the largest concentrations of modern British political manuscripts and archives, to include the United Nations Career Records Project, providing a breadth of coverage which makes it a resource of national and international significance. The collections have been drawn from the private papers of politicians from all three major political parties, as well as from public servants (mainly diplomats), print and broadcast journalists, and others active in public life. In scale the collections range in size from over 2000 boxes to a single diary. See links below for papers relevant to UN studies.
