  • What are the collections kept by the IOC’s Historical Archives?

    The archives fonds retrace the history of the IOC and the Olympic Movement since their creation in 1894 to the present day (except for the last 20 years of activity). They are made up of text documents (paper files) and three collections of microfilms equivalent to a total of one linear kilometre of documents, or approximately 20,000 files.

    The classification of IOC archive fonds reflects the organisation and the activities of the institution over time.
