State Archives of Kyiv Region together with “Digital Country” implemented a pilot project to digitize archives descriptions and creating IR system for rapid access and retrieval of information in the archival fonds of the institutions.
Information database is available to everyone on the official website of the State Archives of Kiev Region (www.dako.gov.ua) – the link “Сivil Registration Books Kiev Region 1919-1939. Database” or http://dako.folium.info/
IR system allows:
- find the necessary information in one / several criteria;
- viewing and sorting items by relevance in any of these parameters;
- viewing of the cards;
- export / save information (card selected items) in one of the text formats (PDF, MsWord) or printout.
Pilot project will make information of the archive funds more open to provide remote access to all interested parties and will optimize the work of institutions, reduce the burden on the staff.
In the second phase project will digitize and provide open access to the fund №384 «Kyiv provincial census commission of the first general census 1897″.
