The szukajwarchiwach.pl service was created and has been maintained and developed by the National Digital Archives since 2009. Since the opening, the service has been already visited by more than 1 000 000 users. The portal is an online interface of the Integrated Archive Information System (ZoSIA) and is used to present the descriptions and copies of the digital archive materials. The scans presented in the service are the effect of the intense digitalization of the archive materials, which is now being conducted in the state archive network. Currently, the service presents more than 14 000 000 digital copies from more than 30 institutions, mainly state archives. The addition of the next digital copies and a considerable service modernisation is planned in the coming future.
