These collections include: the County of Pazin, the Istrian Circle, General Civilian Vice-Commissariat for the Province of Istria in Poreč, Prefecture of Istria in Pula, Regional People's Committee for Istria.

Because of the fragmentarily preserved materials, additional sources are cited at the end of the article, including archival collections form Italy, Austria and Slovenia (Trieste, Graz, Ljubljana). Archives of local government units whose jurisdictions bordered the Lovran area or were in the vicinity represent likely sources of further research due to the connections between the coastal settlements of eastern Istria. These collections include the Municipality of Labin, Potestates of the Municipalities of Labin and Plomin, Notaries of Labin, Temporary Civilian Government of Labin and Plomin (1813-1814), County Commissariat of Labin and two collections of the County Captaincies of Pazin.
