Cultural institutions need to offer virtual or digital access to cultural heritage

The Regional Library “Peyo Yavorov”, city of Burgas

Dealing with the situation in today’s world requires a complete virtual or digital presentation of the cultural heritage for every institution working in the field of culture. We believe this is also needed as a practice in the field of the agriculture, the sports, the tourism and many others, so we are making efforts to adapt in that direction.

Supporting and sharing information related to the living culture allows us to rethink the importance of the intangible cultural heritage and this knowledge helps to overcome the effects of the lockdown. By sharing ICH related information we are trying to focus the audience attention in the world of ICH. By making possible the research work with documents and files from a distance we hope to generally encourage the work from home as a tool to overcome the restricted working conditions and the negative effects of the lockdown.
