Arquivo Distrital de Braga (ADB), the second largest Portuguese Archive, owns thousands of important master pieces, published according to merely typographic techniques. For the great majority, their existence in electronic support is still a mirage. However, some years ago, ADB and the Department of Computer Science at the University of Minho have created a synergy aiming at modernizing, through computing processes, the uniquecultural value the Archive owns. The goal of this document is to provide a technological overview on the work developed at ADB along the years in the arena of electronic publishing. It includes the presentation of a practical case.
