UrFU trains museum workers on use of modern IT, communications tech

Ural Federal University (UrFU) held a refresher course for museum workers on Monday that provided employees with training on the use of modern information and communication technologies.

The program was organized by the Sverdlovsk Regional Museum's Center for Innovative Technology, along with the faculty of arts and cultural studies in the Institute of Humanities and Arts (IGNY) at UrFU.

Museum workers learned about graphics processing, automated information systems, accounting, museum objects, modern technology and the digitization of cultural objects. They also worked on the preservation, treatment and protection of digital heritage.

The IFNY Scientific Library and the Institute of Mathematics and Computer Science at UrFU also helped to implement the program--the largest cooperative effort ever undertaken between a regional museum and university.
