Liivi Uuet is an archivist who has worked at the archives over 40 years. She came across the job by chance, but then fell in love with it and now besides attractive documents there are also memories that keep her at the archives.
The National Archives of Estonia is the centre of archival administration in Estonia. The National Archives collects and preserves records documenting history, culture, nationhood, and social conditions in Estonia.
The archives hold 8.8 million items, the oldest of which dates from 1240. In our virtual reading room one has free access to over 15 millions of digital images online and in 2015 already 99% of archival visits were online.
In the project CO:OP our activities include creating topotheques, organizing “Adventures in archives” and contributing to the blog.
