Using Archives

Although the central mission of the archives is to keep documents as the witnesses of times they were created in, the full meaning of the existence of archives is achieved only when the documents prepared for this purpose can be viewed by the scientific and professional public.

Since 1958, when the Archives opened its reading room, making it possible for different researchers to get an insight into the wealth of information kept at its funds and collections, the reading room has been visited by 12.578 researchers. They researched different topics from the field of political, cultural, social, economic, national and local history.

In addition to being used for scientific and research purposes, archival holdings are also used for the purpose of realization of the rights of legal and physical persons, operational needs of state bodies and within the cultural and educational activities of the Archives, for the purpose of exhibiting and publishing.
