German term or phrase: Einsicht
Hi guys,

Could you help me out with the term "Einsicht" in this context? The text is about archiving software in the Brandenburg Central State Archive:

Das Brandenburgische Landeshauptarchiv nutzt seit 2013 scopeArchiv™ zur Bestandsverwaltung und die Einsicht fand fast ausschliesslich im Lesesaal statt.

agree  Björn Vrooman: Same as "Akteneinsicht." There's an ellipsis here: "Einsicht in die Dateien/Dokumente/das Archiv." As an alternative, you could use "access" - may make the sentence a bit shorter.
