For some years now the Israel State Archives has been engaged in scanning its holdings and up till today about a million documents have been scanned. The purpose of this project is two-fold: to make the material held in the Archives more accessible to the public and to preserve the original material in digital form.
Readers are permitted to use the scanned material for their purposes, including downloading or printing.
The Israel State Archives intends to make scanned material available to the public in a gradual process.
For your information: the navigation aids and much of the material available on-line are in Hebrew.
