ST PETERSBURG, March 28 /ITAR-TASS/. The Presidential Library on Friday opens an Electronic Museum of Russia's Constitution for Internet users. The resource, created in conjunction with the Presidential Library and Moscow State University (MGU) named after Mikhail V. Lomonosov for the 20th anniversary of the Fundamental Law of the Russian Federation in December 2013, will begin to operate in full format, Valentin Sidorin, director for public relations and mass communications at the Presidential Library, told Itar-Tass.
Until today, Sidorin explained, the virtual museum was represented in Internet resources only as project with a limited set of functions, whereas now users will have an opportunity to get acquainted with all the headings and materials of the muserum, including interactive projects, view the items in 3D, and make a virtual tour of the museum halls.
"Subsequently, the Presidential Library will develop and replenish the stocks of the Constitution Museum in interaction with MGU, St Petersburg State University, the Federation Council upper house of the Russian parliament, the State Duma lower house of parliament and other institutions and agenncies that have a bearing on legislation drafting, as well as on the storage and study of documents about the history of domestic constitutionalism," Sidorin said.
The E-Museum of the Constitution has inherent resources for further growth and development with the use of the state-of-the-art multimedia technologies. The Museum architecture makes it possible to add an unlimited number of halls, materials and exhibits. The virtual museum can be translated into various langages. Its regional branches are also likely to be brought into being. The possibility also exists to work out special interacive teaching courses for schoolchildren and students on the basis of the virtual museum.
As of now, the e-museum already comprises more than 5,500 minutes of video and audio recordings, about 500 photographs, 5,000 scanned copies of authentic archival documents, 400 scientific articles, and 200 3D images, including most valuable documents, such as the original "Conditions" of the Supreme Privy Council of 1730, the Charters of the Russian Empire of the first quarter of the 19th century, constitutional projects of the Decembrists, the Constitution of the RSFSR of 1918, the Constitution written by Academician Andrei D. Sakharov, and the 1993 Constitution of the RF with handwritten notations made by the Russian Federation's First President Boris N. Yeltsin.
