Bibliographical Database

The UNESCO-ICOMOS documentation centre specializes in the
conservation and restoration of cultural heritage. It gathers and
disseminates information concerning principles, techniques and
policies for the conservation, protection, rehabilitation and
enhancement of monuments, groups of buildings and sites.

The documentation centre keeps around 40.000 volumes, 400
periodicals and a collection of 25.000 slides on monuments and sites
inscribed in the World Heritage List.

The database includes monographs, articles from specialized
journals, conferences proceedings, technical reports, unpublished

and all the nomination files of the cultural properties inscribed on

The database is also available on the Conservation Information
