The documents of the League of Nations is important historical data about the origins of the United Nations and is of great importance in understanding the historical evolution and practical role of the United Nations to the whole world. As part of the ongoing revitalization of historiography about the League, there has been a demonstrated interest in data about and from the League that have already been used in the context of digital humanities, data analytics, and data visualization. But because the data has a long history that has been kept in the form of archives at the UN, the preservation of the same is very important and use of these paper versions is very inconvenient. We are aimed at expanding the effective use of this data and information. So our project is to create a fusion of automation technology and crowdsourcing in order to help scan the documents, sort them out and promote the implementation of SDG so that the archives, not only for the case of League of Nations, but also for all the other archives all across the libraries in the world in order to store them online or simply digitize them.
