There is a renewed interest in photonuclear reactions for various applications such as active nuclear material detection techniques and radioactive ion beam or neutron production targets. However, contrary to the neutron induced reactions, evaluated nuclear data libraries contain little information for photons. In particular, there are very few photonuclear data evaluations of actinides above 20 MeV. This paper gives an overview of our on-going activities on photonuclear data evaluation of actinides up to 130 MeV.
