I’ll represent samples of databases models for the archaeological artifacts used in the museums of Romania, for a better understanding of the special needs in a country where the illegal traffic of cultural artifacts is still taking its toll. The only proposed national program for the evidence and recording of the archaeological objects is DOCPAT for a centralized recording management. Nevertheless, the protection of cultural patrimony it’s a necessity when proposing general recording datasheets to be generally followed. Therefore, when the artifacts are various the databases models should differ as an essential factor for the patrimony management.
The presentation focuses on the type of the program and the special needs not yet included in it according to the international standards.
