The Integrated Archival Information System (pl. ZoSIA) facilitates archival processing, particularly the inventorying and processing of archival holdings. It is used by all State Archives, as well as several dozen other institutions which store state and registered non-state archival resource (holdings). These institutions include such expatriate organizations as the Ignacy Domeyko Polish Library Archive (Argentina), the Archives of the Polish Catholic Mission in France, Polish Institute of Arts & Sciences of America – PIASA, Polish Institute of Culture and Research at Orchard Lake, the The Pontifical Institute of Ecclesiastical Studies in Rome, as well as the Polish Music Centre (US).
Implementing The Integrated Archival Information System
If you would like to use The Integrated Archival Information System in your institution, contact us by e-mail.
Every implementation of The Integrated Archival Information System must be approved by the General Director of the State Archives. Upon approval, your institution will receive a special archival registry number, and you will be referred to the National Digital Archives, which will provide your institution with ongoing support in using the system.
Implementing The Integrated Archival Information System will also enable you to publish digital copies of archival materials and adding their descriptions to the Search the Archives system. This is a great way to make available for use valuable historical sources in your possession with researchers, historians, genealogists, hobbyists and other people with an interest in archival materials from all over the world!
