Archival holdings

Archival material stored in the Archives of Yugoslavia is inevitable for research of complete social, political, economic and cultural life of Yugoslavia from its foundation in 1918 to dissolution of State Union of Serbia and Montenegro in 2006. In the depots of the Archives that are on two locations, one in the building of the Archives of Yugoslavia and the other one in the former building of Federal Executive Council II (Bulevar Mihaila Pupina), 795 archival fonds are preserved and 87 collections. All documentary material of Yugoslav central state authorities and institutions, political organizations and societies are in the archival fonds. Most of the fonds that have been processed and arranged have finding aids (Inventories) used to inform public about the contents of the fonds. Most of the collections stored in the Archives are created by work of the respectable persons in public and smaller number was created through the work of political movement

The database Inventar contains the complete contents of 146 finding aids (inventories)

Due to a shortage of storage space, part of the archival holdings has not been taken over and is located outside the Archives.

Based on the material of other funds and library material, the existence of a number of institutions whose material or part of the material has not been preserved has been reconstructed. (Lists are prepared only in Serbian language)

Look at the digitized copies that we have prepared for you. Find out what kind of different documents are preserved in the Archives of Yugoslavia, which are the oldest documents and what archival material is the most researched.

In a case that you possess collection or archival material from your personal or family legacy that is tied to the history of Yugoslavia You are kindly asked to contact us in order to evaluate your original material or for eventual repurchase of that material or donation.
