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 appointment only from Monday to Friday. Please contact us by phone 01 41 94 17 59 or via our contact form.

 

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.

Among others:

  • Collection "Monuments and Sites "
  • Heritage at risk special editions
  • Proceedings of ICOMOS Symposia
  • Thematic studies in the context of the World Heritage Convention
  • ICOMOS Scientific Journals (remaining issues)
