Digital archives of representative plates obtained with the 0.60/0.90 m Schmidt telescope of the Konkoly Observatory major observing programs are in progress. Here we present the digital archive of plates obtained according to the supernova search program, which has been run since 1962 for more than a 30-year period. The selected plates with a limiting magnitude of B ss 19 mag are scanned with the Konkoly Observatory UMAX PowerLook scanner and are available at the WFPDB, installed in Sofia.
