Tresoar in Leeuwarden

Tresoar manages digital archives about Friesland and its literature. There is a study room open to the public, and most catalogs are online and free to access. In addition to 2-dimensional material such as photographs, scanned books and documents, there is a growing collection of multi-media objects such as film and audio material that can also be searched and accessed online.

Tresoar was created through a merger in 2002 of the Friesian Literature museum with the Provincial library and the National Friesian archives. Tresoar functions as a regional historical center with a small exposition hall (the "treasure room"), and is located at Boterhoek 1, Leeuwarden.

Since 2007, all 255 editions of the Leeuwarder Courant have been digitized and placed online.
