The Archival Directory is a large database of archival descriptions and collections and is part of the CENDARI Virtual Research Environment.
It has a strong transnational focus and one of its aims is to include many archives and institutions which are little known or rarely used by researchers. The Archival Directory allows historians to view sources in a rarely seen transnational and comparative view. It is focused on archives and libraries containing resources on the Medieval era and World War One.
