About the Archive
Inner Asia, a broad region consisting of Mongolia and parts of China, Russia and Central Asia, including Inner Mongolia, Xinjiang, Buryatia, Tuva and eastern Kazakhstan, is a region of the world that has often presented challenges to researchers due to its relative isolation and inaccessibility.

The archive is open in every way from the software that supports it to the materials contained in it. It offers a step in the direction towards providing broad access to rare and valuable resources to the general public both in Inner Asia and internationally.
