How to work with the website


The electronic catalogue of the website allows both context search and search on certain parameters, such as title of file, dates and names, place of storage, type of archive documents and their mode of implementation.


The websites of the portal require registration of researchers and scientific groups. Registration will allow you to access electronic copies of the documents in good quality (with high resolution) and conduct detailed textological research.

We would also like to understand who our audience is.
