Sources come from coherent and complete collections. Priority is given to written and graphic documents (such as manuscripts, prints, newspapers, photographs, postcards, and maps), but some other types of sources are also included.

Basic and advanced search are possible. In addition, it is possible to browse according to theme, collection, chronological period, or location. Material is shown as digitized version of the original, in either TIFF, JPEG, or PDF format.
