Meta and primary data can be transferred to the DLS from the AIS or a digital long-term archive at any time and displayed in the usual structure.
Thanks to the use of a powerful search engine, it is possible to search both meta and primary data.
While strolling through the holdings, users have the opportunity to reserve individual archival items and submit them for ordering.

Frequently asked questions
