Welcome to the Documentation Centre of the International Council on Monuments and Sites! The ICOMOS Documentation Centre specializes in cultural heritage, historic monuments and sites, their conservation and restoration. The ICOMOS Documentation Centre is the primary repository for the original documentation of the cultural and mixed (natural and cultural) properties that have been inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List since 1978.
The Documentation centre is open by apointment only from 10:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m. on Mondays, and until 5:00 p.m. on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.
The Documentation centre will be closed from December the 26th to January the 10th 2017.
We wish you a Happy New Year 2017!
Our Holiday Contest ended on the 18th December,
and we would like to thank all the participants for their involvement.
Indeed, more than 200 photos were uploaded during the contest.
You can already discover them on our photobank.
We will reveal the winners during the first weeks of January.
Thank you for the gift you made to the cultural heritage community.
In the catalogue, you will find publications by ICOMOS International but also International Scientific Committees and National Committees. Not all of them are for sale at the International Secretariat: some are to be purchased from the Committees themselves.

After several years of work and having consulted our members in order to learn about their needs (see e-news No. 91, June 2013), the ICOMOS Documentation Centre is proud to present its latest tool: the ICOMOS collaborative photobank. We thank warmly the Walloon region for their financial support throughout this project.
The official proceedings of the ICOMOS International Symposium "Heritage and Landscape as Human Values" held in 2014 on the occasion of the 18th ICOMOS General Assembly in Florence are now available for purchase in e-book and hardcopy versions.
