Archives Portal Europe

The Archives Portal Europe provides access to information on archival material from different European countries as well as information on archival institutions throughout the continent.

The Archives Portal Europe is maintained, developed and enhanced by the APEx project ( and supported by the European Commission in the ICT PSP programme.

The project's consortium currently consists of 28 national archives and national archives administrations, all of which are already represented within the Archives Portal Europe with parts of their archival material available to search online, as well as with additional information on the institutions themselves.

You may wish to use the Advanced Search Features which allow to limit to one of the 28 national archives members and to their specific contents.

What is important in order to access fully available digital contents in OA is that you can limit your search to "Only material with digital objects"
