Languages of publication
This paper examines the history, structure and the activities of the Inspectorate-General of Archives and Libraries in Slovakia between 1919 and 1951. Two renowned historians occupied the post of Inspector General: Václav Chaloupecký, a Czech by birth, and Branislav Varsik. In their role, both these scholars of historiography and history who pioneered these subjects at the Comenius University expended great amounts of time and effort to protect a number of important archives. They laid also the groundwork for the establishment of a truly unified and national network of archives whose mission would be to safeguard the nation‘s cultural heritage and make it available to the general public.
