Interested readers can access valuable materials such as 70 Năm Đảng Cộng Sản Việt Nam (1930-2000) (70th Anniversary of Việt Nam Communist Party, 1930-2000); Một Số Vấn Đề về Lịch Sử Giai Cấp Công Nhân Việt Nam (Some Issues on the History of Vietnamese Working Class); and Những Sự Kiện Lịch Sử Đảng (Historic Events of the Party).
