Sistory.si is an education and research portal of Slovenian historiography. In addition to digitising Slovenian historical sources and literature it provides a platform for international and interdisciplinary discussions on current events, findings or new publications. Its aim is also to open up the space for local, national and international connections in the field of research and education. The portal has just recently been opened to the public (in 2008), even though, it is considered to be an on-going process. The paper will discuss initial ideas, problems and further questions accompanying the establishment of the portal.
