For many decades, the staff members of the ITS had been working with the documents in the archives on a daily basis, until the collections that had been gathered for the documentation and tracing work came to be recognized as an historically significant archival collection. New tasks have arisen from this: At the center are all the measures that contribute to the protection of the documents, as well as their preservation for future generations. In 1988 the digitization began, so that, as a rule, research work is done using digital copies in order to protect the original documents. Through the indexing and archival description work, research and access to the documents will be gradually simplified.
