United Nations: United Nations Career Records Project


The United Nations Career Records Project (UNCRP) was set up in 1989 with the aim of constructing an archive of recollections and journals relating to the careers of UN officials from throughout the organization, including its many specialized agencies.

The resulting collection includes a wealth of contributions from workers in the field, peacekeeping forces and administrative staff, as well as material from national representatives to the UN and from Non-Governmental Organization (the Anti-Slavery Society and the Quakers) members involved in UN work. Contributions take the form of contemporaneous papers, memoirs and interviews (recordings and transcripts), almost all of which are available for consultation. The project remains open for further contributions. For ease of access full details of the collection are kept on a computer database, and a hard copy catalogue is also available. For further information on the collection and how to consult material please email
