The research methodology combines the systematic analysis of special collections of archival documents with the superimposition of the results on the relevant historical background, since this research is intended purely for practical application. The scientifi c novelty consists in the presentation and introduction into scientifi c circulation of newly discovered and accessible historical documents, and in introducing of the Czech Internet resources that provide access to users regardless of their location. Conclusions. The Slavonic Library in Prague, which is among the three largest Slavonic libraries in the world, has a fairly large collection of non-book archival materials, among other things, partially inherited from the unique fond of the Museum of the Liberation Struggle of Ukraine in Prague. These document collections have been gradually inventoried and made available to researchers over the past 20 years. The presentation on the Internet, which began in modern times, allows researchers from all over the world to get acquainted with unique collections that were long considered lost. New parts of the «Special Collections of the Slavonic Library» fund are regularly published in modern times on the portal of the National Museum of the Czech Republic presented in the article.
