Besides having the status quo recorded in an opening balance, 2014 brought along a number of other innovations. Along with changes in personnel, which included a new Archive Management, the digitization of MPG films deserves particular mention. For the first time ever, these materials can be made available to interested users. Attention was paid to enhancing the Archive's visibility and the usability of its holdings. Like every year, the Archive received numerous queries from within Germany and from abroad as well as from the Institutes and the Administrative Headquarters of the MPG.
