Among the archived periodicals, there are a number of scientific journals (“born digital”, i.e. published only in an electronic format), literary journals, newspapers digitized retrospectively, scientific journals, humor magazines, but the Dear Reader can also browse in newspapers published across the borders, as well as in district and town bulletins.
