Bilten /the first review of the Archives of Yugoslavia, was launched in June 1980. Its last (9th) issue was published in October 1986. Dr Sida Marjanović, Director of the Archives of Yugoslavia, was the editor-in-chief of the review. Bilten was printed at the printing office of the Archives.
The review made up for its modest technical presentation by topical and important contributions from the field of profession, which can even today assist in the resolution of numerous professional dilemmas. "The cultural and research mission of an institution's staff is worth of attention only if its work is public", Archives Director Dr Sida Marjanović said in the editorial in the first issue, paving the way for the professional competition of the most responsible people in the Archives, whose contributions made up the review. Each issue, printed on about 90 pages, was full of professional contributions dealing with topical problems in work and proposals for their resolution.
A regular section was dedicated to the publication of annual plans and programmes and achieved results. The other contributions always dealt with topical problems, such as protection and evaluation of archive documents and introduction of modern information technologies. The review tried to inform the general public about the first organised attempts at publishing archive funds.
