Summary/Abstract: Rad daje osnovne informacije o početku digitalizacije u Arhivu Bosne i Hercegovine i o aktualnoj problematici koja se u tom procesu javlja. Archive digitization process is much more than mere scanning of documents. It is rising of archival praxis on a whole new level, with aim to create multifunctional digital system to be ready to serve both creators and record-keepers. Due to objective circumstances, Archives of Bosnia and Herzegovina could not keep pace with similar institutions abroad, but we shall have the good use of others’ experience. The main problem in the digitization process is related to huge amount of documents and technological limitations. Standards for digitization are generally determined, but since there is no premanent solution for record-keeping hardware, it is necessary to stay in touch with latest innovations. Archives of Bosnia and Herzegovina transferred several catalogues into digital format and the benefi ts are clearly visible. Faster access to data and possibility for multiple search is something what every archivist could only dreamed of just few decades ago. After implementation of ARHiNET software and transferring the certain amount of data is completed, our full integration into modern archival societies will become accomplished.
