The Archives Portal Europe is the single online access point to an ever growing network of European archives, allowing us to gain an easily accessible insight into our shared European cultural provenance and progression, turning the spotlight on the vast network of archival content that documents the excitement of our European heritage as well as reflecting our multifaceted European weave.
APEx is the joint effort of the already participating European archives and those archival institutions yet to
