The modern history of the archive in Liberec began on 1 September 1948 when a municipal archive in Liberec was founded. In 1954, two separate district archives (Liberec and Frýdlant) were established, in addition to which the Liberec City Archive continued to operate. After the territorial reform of 1960, these three archives were merged into a single institution.
SOkA v Liberec is one of the largest archives of its kind in the Czech Republic. It handles over 6 linear km of archival material, which makes up more than 2,200 archive files. Like every district archive, it manages the documents of the state administration, towns and municipalities, guilds and communities, materials of ecclesiastical institutions, schools, associations, companies of the Liberec district, or written inheritance of important persons of the region.
The Archival VadeMeCum web application enables researchers to view the published, digitised archival documentation and search the fonds and collections of the State Regional Archives Litoměřice as well as its State District Archives (including SOkA v Liberec) in the Ústí and Liberec regions in northern Bohemia.
