“Documentation is a material trace of the present and, over time, it becomes a cultural heritage”.
The documentation section has been established to achieve the advancement of digital methods and techniques for preserving, presenting and analyzing cultural heritage and providing a systematic, quality and uniform access to digitized material.
Continuous arrival of new materials requires efficient professional processing, a simpler process of data entry, permanent and secure storage and access to the data entered for further processing, study, protection and presentation.
In the documentation section of the National Museum in Leskovac, the tasks of entering data on cultural property from the museum are organized and executed in the Central Register in accordance with the established rules on keeping the Central Register, and in cooperation with the curators of collections.
