Services for researchers

In addition to their research and conservation activities, the staff of the Archives offer their services to the ever-growing number of researchers who come to study in the Archives from every corner of the globe in order to provide visitors with easy and productive access to the historical sources that have accumulated in the storerooms of the Archives over the centuries. Every day the prefect entrusts the staff of the Reading Rooms with the task of researching documents and deeds commissioned to the Archivio Segreto Vaticano by organizations and individuals.
The staff also provide researchers with their invaluable services for consulting the descriptive archive research tools and help them interpret the old inventories.
