Rosneft and Russian National Public Library for Science and Technology signed a long-term cooperation agreement, which provides for implementation of joint humanitarian projects aimed at harmonization of relations between business community, scientific establishments, and educational institutions.

The partnership includes implementation of a joint project aimed at the creation of electronic archived catalogue of Rosneft Museum holdings. This will provide safety of existing information collection, and updating of a virtual museum collection with new materials.

Company employees will have access to the holdings and electronic resources of Russian National Public Library for Science and Technology, including collections of rare books and visual historical materials of the Russian Empire, Soviet Union, and Russian Federation, full-text electronic collections of modern scientific and technical literature, and wide range of foreign periodical publications.

There has been also planned the creation of Referral and Analytical Department Library, as a stand-alone branch, for continuous monitoring of informational materials, and preparation of digests for expert analysis and participation in the development of museum programs and projects.

Progressively as the Library accumulates the information base, it will prepare analytical reviews on thematic areas for structural units of the Company, and at a later stage forecast the development of oil and gas sector.
