Last week was Preservation Week, when libraries around the world focused on the preservation of oral histories.

Did you know that the UN Dag Hammarskjold Library offers a digital collection of oral history interviews and transcripts with senior UN officials and diplomats that offer insider views and personal perspectives on the Organization's work to maintain world peace?  This is the UN Oral History Collection, a joint project of the UN Library and Yale University.

We invite you to explore this collection in the UN Digital Library.

You can also access this content by selecting the Images and Sounds collection from the UN Digital Library home page.

Discover world history and international diplomacy by listening to the voices that influenced and shaped it!
