Modern Information Technologies (IT), including 3D, are revolutionising our world. Digitisation allows
data transfer to virtually indestructible Internet space. This process also applies to historical remains
that create the world’s cultural heritage. However, to accomplish this process, in addition to IT
capabilities and tools, it is necessary to raise knowledge and competence, as well as awareness,
among existing museum employees. These employees have high skills in areas related to cultural
heritage preservation. Unfortunately, their knowledge of modern, digital technologies requires
a significant increase.
The article presents experience from the implementation of a number of seminars among museum
employees and researchers associated with the preservation of cultural heritage. The seminars were
carried out by IT specialists and designed to present modern tools, technologies and devices for
accurate 3D scanning of historical objects. During the seminars, contemporary methods of
disseminating information on artefacts of cultural heritage, such as web portals, 3D presentations and
virtual reality methods were also presented.
The seminars were aimed at increasing the knowledge of museum employees in the field of IT
applications as well as at developing among them a positive approach to new digital technologies.
