The online column Archivalia of the month has been published since January 2011. Its purpose is to promote the Archives of the Republic of Slovenia and its archival holdings. Presented in the column are archival documents that are interesting visually and content-wise, as well as newly acquired documents or the ones that have so far been overlooked. Also published are documents relating to various anniversaries, current events and many more.
Archival records – from medieval parchment documents to contemporary digital records on various media – constitute an irreplaceable testimony of past events and are an important part of our cultural heritage and national memory.
Public archival service is provided by the Archives of the Republic of Slovenia and regional archives. Slovenian archives collect, preserve, arrange, describe and facilitate access to the Slovenian archival heritage.
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.

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.
