DEPARTMENT OF DIGITIZATION AND WEB SERVICES

 
  The Matenadaran after Mesrop Mashtots Institute of Ancient Manuscripts started works of digitization and web services of the manuscript collections in 2007 and is now continuing it.
In the sphere of digitization of ancient manuscripts, as well as from viewpoint of technologies used in that process, the Matenadaran accumulated considerable experience. Digitization of the manuscripts is imperious of the time first of all because the cultural values based on the material basis wear out sooner or later, but new technologies allow us to keep intact the digital images of these values and transmit them to future generations.
