Materials like books, photographs, audio-visual materials and datasets from the foundation’s archive were indexed and digitized and are now available in the project’s digital library. A registration is obligatory for the user – which unfortunately limits the public access and reception of the materials – but however quickly accomplished. One may hope that projects like this will make the Vlachs/Aromanians respectively the Balkan Romance people better known to a general public: despite their geographically vast space of settlements these ethnic groups are barely known outside their Southeast European home countries.
