In 1988, the R&DAEL was integrated into the Belarusian Trade and Production Association of Art Folk-Crafts and later into the «Belmestprom» Concern. In July 1992, the R&DAEL was reorganized into the Belarusian Folk-Crafts Center «Skarbnitsa» (BFCC).

In 1978-1991, the R&DAEL conducted an expedition survey actually of all regions and districts of Belarus having traditional art-craft centers to study folk arts and find masters skillful in traditional crafts. The Lab employees collected unique scientific data on the Belarusian folk art which were systematized and filed in the methodical fund, the scientific card catalog and photo archive of which contain about 13000 samplers, slide library — about 5000 slides, methodical reference books and photo albums classified by art crafts types — more then 100 samplers.
