For the first time, the German Archives Portal Archivportal-D, financed by the German Research Foundation (DFG), offers centralized and comprehensive access to the records of various kinds of German archives. The portal includes such varied resources including state and communal archives, as well as church and business records. Researchers are able to find archival information, look through finding aids provided by participating archives, view search results and study digital copies of archival records.
Archivportal-D is part of the Deutsche Digitale Bibliothek (the overall German digital library) and is connected with other archival information systems of both regional and European significance. Given Germany’s federal system, this project is an excellent example of what professional communities can achieve through combined efforts.
