BEIJING, June 16 (Xinhua) -- China has formed a database for cultural relics being stored in the country's museums, the State Administration of Cultural Heritage (SACH) said Thursday.

The results of a 10-year national survey of the nation's museums, which was completed around the end of 2010, have allowed China's cultural authorities to compile information on the country's cultural relics into a single digital archive, said Shan Jixiang, the administration's director.
