Also published are documents relating to various anniversaries, current events and many more.
Archival Cultural Heritage
Public archival network
Public archival service is provided by the Archives of the Republic of Slovenia and regional archives.
Archival records are priceless and as such they are considered a cultural monument. They constitute a small but most valuable part of current records and are of permanent significance for history, science and culture, as well as for the protection of legal interest of natural and legal persons. Their appearance had changed through time, and even today they come in different forms, bring different content, and can either be used in their original form or as reproductions.

Slovenian electronic archives
Due to widespread implementation of information technology in our everyday lives and because of its extensive use in all areas and at all levels of modern society, current and archival records are now being produced in a number of different forms, which poses a unique challenge to Slovenian public archives.
e-ARH.si is a complex environment intended for e-archiving. It includes procedures for submitting digitized and born digital records into the public Archives as well as their processing, long-term preservation (in accordance with valid legislation), and further use.
Under the umbrella of the E-ARK3 Project 20 partners are supporting the development of the CEF eArchiving Building Block as a solution for long-term information assurance. It provides the specifications, reference software, training and service desk support for digital archiving.
The E-ARK4ALL Project is a consortium of five partners working with the European Commission’s Connecting Europe Facility (CEF). The Archive of the Republic of Slovenia participates in the projectas a partner in the DLM Forum.
