In 2018, the first guide to the resources of the university archives was published Archives of Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń. Information on archival resources. As of December 31, 2017, edited by A. Supruniuk and W. Krajniak, whose authors are employees of the Archives. The guide consists of three main parts: the introductory part  (preface, introduction, calendar, list of abbreviations), the basic part (the presentation of the resource) and the supplementary part (a list of components, a list of illustrations, bibliography, summary in English, material index). It has been very carefully prepared in terms of content and graphics. Particularly noteworthy is the extensive and valuable introduction, which allows you to understand the structure and method of using the help section, and above all it introduces the history of the Archives and its resources. The main part of the Guide is the characteristics of the resource, which allows you to get acquainted with the collected archives. The description of individual components contains eight detailed pieces of information concerning their content, supplemented with the chronological scope of individual series of files. The whole is completed by a well thought-out and carefully prepared supplementary apparatus. The value of the publication is significantly increased by its graphic design and careful edition, including numerous photographs that perfectly illustrate individual parts. The preparation of the first guide to the university archive resource required the Authors to take up several problems of priority importance for academic archival studies, including first and foremost the structure of this type of archival resource. The publication will find its permanent place in the achievements of Polish archival studies not only because of its pioneering nature, but above all, owing to the high substantive level of information contained therein.
