The website gives access to a digital version of “Kaiserurkunden in Abbildungen” by Theodor von Sickel and Heinrich von Sybel, which appeared in two volumes in 1891. It was soon to become a standard work for diplomatics, one volume containing facsimiles of 364 charters of emperors and kings of the Holy Roman Empire, from the Merovingians until the beginning of the 16th century (716–1517), with a second volume providing detailed descriptions of the charters. It covers all types of regal and imperial charters and thus enables the user to study their outward appearance and their development.

„Matricula. Church registers online“ is a digitization of church registers from parishes and religious communities in Austria and Germany. It was initiated by “ICARUS – International Centre for Archival Research”, an association of archives from 23 European states and Canada. In a first pilot phase it provides digitized images of church registers from catholic parishes in Lower Austria (Diözesanarchiv St. Pölten), Upper Austria (Oberösterreichisches Landesarchiv), Vienna (Erzdiözese Wien), the catholic dioceses of Passau and Hildesheim, the protestant churches of Rhineland, Kurhessen-Waldeck and the Evangelical Central Archive in Berlin. Some of the registers go back to the early 17th century (individual volumes even further), the years before World War II (in some cases 1939) marking the final period covered by the project.

Monasterium.net is a platform offering online access to a vast range of diplomatic sources from European archives. Starting out as a project restricted to the charters preserved in the archives of monasteries in Lower Austria in the early 2000s it has developed into a collaboration of public (state and municipal) and private (diocesan, monastic and other) archives from 13 Central European countries, bringing together charters from about 110 single archival collections.
Regesten zur Geschichte der Juden in Österreich im Mittelalter, commented by Renate Spreitzer (IMAF)
In 2005 and 2010 two volumes of „Regesten zur Geschichte der Juden in Österreich im Mittelalter“ were published by Eveline Brugger and Birgit Wiedl in printed form. They contain a total of 1144 regests in chronological order, from the beginnings until 1338 (vol. 1) and from 1339 until 1365 (vol. 2). An index of persons and places as well as a bibliography complete the volumes. Both volumes were scanned and are available online in pdf-format.
Two volumes covering the periods from 1366–1386 and from 1387–1404 sponsored by the Austrian Science Fund are currently being prepared and it is to be expected that they will be digitized as well.

The project „Regesta Imperii“ (RI) was started in the 19th century by Friedrich Böhmer (1795–1863) and is now one of the most extensive collections of data relating to the history of Europe. It aims at opening up diplomatic and historiographic sources for the history of the Holy Roman Empire from the time of the Carolingians to Emperor Maximilian I (751–1519) as well as for papal history in the early and high Middle Ages. The online-version “RI-Online” covers the contents of all volumes that have been published since 1839, accompanied by indices specially provided for the digital edition.
