Finding aids

Catalogues and registers of specific types of material are among the important finding aids. Some finding aids are only available in printed or mimeographed versions. After the introduction of computer based cataloguing, search for archival objects can be made both on site and on the internet.

Catalogues at the Mission Archives reading room

The majority of our current catalogues are presented on a specific page here on our website. A few items have been scanned and made available in the list.

The ASTA database

ASTA is the software used by major public and private repositories in Norway. In addition to creating catalogues, the database also controls the location of the material in the storage rooms.

As soon as archival material is received, it is registreded as accessions. Information about the creator and other actors related to the material are registered. Prior to publication of catalogues the staff at the Mission Archives can perform searches in the database for the benefit of guests and other users of our material.

Arkivportalen.no - the nationwide site for search in archival material in Norway

Arkivportalen is growing to become the main site for published catalogues of public and private repositories in Norway.

The Mission Archives is in the process of preparing ASTA-based catalogues for display on the site. Until then, a few of our collections are found on the previous site for private collections, namely Samkatalogen for privatarkiv.
