Pursuant to the valid legislation for Slovak galleries creating collections, this department develops and operates the information system of the central records of the gallery collection items - CEDVU (Centrálna evidencia diel výtvarného umenia – Central Records of the Fine Art Works). The records are also available to interested parties in the form of a card index (central catalogue).

This department also administers and accesses other digital collections for the internal needs of the SNG – publication, promotional and research materials. It coordinates the acquisition of statistical data on the activities of the galleries in the Slovak Republic and subsequently processes them in the required form.
