Important update from Archivaria for Swets customers!

Based on recent news that Swets (Swets & Zeitlinger Group BV) was granted bankruptcy protection by a court in Amsterdam, we are encouraging our customers to evaluate potential risks if they continue to submit payments to Swets for Archivaria either print or online subscriptions.

Our concern is specific to all payments that are to be made to Swets, including but not limited to 2015 subscriptions. We want our customers to be aware of the potential impact this situation might have on your institution’s access to Archivaria content and to give you time to consider your options before committing to your 2015 subscriptions. We suggest that you consider using an alternative agent for any existing or planned subscription orders. We would like to assure our customers that we will work with them to reduce the potential impact of this unfortunate situation. If you have already made a payment to Swets, please notify us immediately at

If you have not yet made a payment to Swets or if you have any questions or concerns, please contact Maureen Tracey, contact the ACA at
