The MDC Personnel Archive
The personnel archive was founded in early 2002 as a part of the Archive of Museums and Galleries in Croatia with the aim of collecting and keeping relevant information created through the activities of prominent individuals in the Republic of Croatia whose work and efforts resulted in the promotion of the museum profession and their local area.
By collecting the information for the Personnel Archive we are contributing to the cultural history of Croatia, facilitating research for future generations and creating materials for future museum publications. This segment of the intangible heritage has the same value as other archival materials and is subject to regulations pertaining to the protection of cultural assets.
