Department of Documentation

Since it was first established, the Institute of Art History has assembled and processed art-historical documentation. In 2006 a specialised research department was set up which carries out three basic and closely linked tasks. The first is research in the field of art history sources, the second editing work, and the third is making accessible the written (especially bequests by individuals and institutions) and pictorial documentary collections of the Institute, divided up into its collections of prints, plans, and photographs. A special collection is formed by the material related to the work of the N.P. Kondakov Archaeological Institute. The Department also provides services for Czech and international researchers and other interested parties, for whom a new study room will be opened in 2010.

Currently on of the most important task for the Department is making accessible the unique collections of historical photo documentation and developing methodical tools for work of this type.
