About the CERN Archive: "The CERN Archive is a repository for records about all aspects of CERN's history, from 1954 until the present day. It includes files of letters, memos, reports, notes and other documents created or received in the course of their duties by former Directors-General and other senior staff, by the CERN Council and subordinate Committees, and by CERN Divisions, and selected Experiments and Committees. In addition to the CERN fonds, it also contains the Wolfgang Pauli Archive: a collection of correspondence, manuscripts and other material representing the scientific legacy of Wolfgang Pauli (Nobel Laureate, 1945)." [Description taken from the site.]

The website provides a searchable database of the archive's holdings, as well as a finding aid. Some of the Pauli documents are freely available in full-text. Consult the website for more information on what documents are available online.
