ArcheoBiblioBase: Archives in Russia: B-15Last update of repository: 21 December 2016
Rossiiskii gosudarstvennyi arkhiv v g. Samare
The Central State Archive of Scientific-Technical Documentation of the USSR (TsGANTD SSSR) was established in 1967 in Moscow (according to a decree of 1964) on the basis of the scientific-technical division documentation in the Central State Archive of the National Economy (TsGANKh SSSR, now RGAE—B-6). The archive was transferred to a specially constructed new building in Kuibyshev in 1976. The archive was renamed as RGNTA in 1992. A branch of the archive remained in Moscow and, until the 1995 reorganization, functioned as a temporary depository for records, most of which were eventually intended for transfer to Samara (Kuibyshev). The former RGNTA repository in Samara became administratively a branch of the Russian State Archive of Scientific-Technical Documentation (RGANTD—B-9) in Moscow. In October 2016 the Samara branch of RGANTD is transformed into an independent Russian State Archive in Samara.
