Cuza University in 2011, available at http://dictionare.enciclopedii.uaic.ro/catalog CD-UAIC/. The platform includes teaching and research staff of the University „Al. I. Cuza”, since 1860, year of establishment, until 1990 and is accomplished using three main sources: UAIC annuals, states of functions and the National Archives of Romania (Iasi subsidiary).
