The Year of Literary Triumph

New items have been added recently to the National Library collections: the album "The Year of Literature" and "The Electronic Dictionary of State Languages of the CIS and Georgia".

 "The Year of Literature" album is an illustrative chronicle of events, activities and major celebrations of the Year of Literature in Russia. As stated in the foreword to the edition by chairman of organizational committee of the Year Sergey Naryshkin "it is not a mere report on achievements of the state program, but rather a very emotional, documentary evidence of the public interest in books and reading in Russia. Readers, writers, librarians, publishers have acted as initiators and participants of splendid events, contests, literary marathons, setting aesthetic and cultural trends in the general population".


The section of the album "The Geography of the Year of Literature" comprises information about the 3rd Book Festival "Chitaj, Izhevsk!" ("Izhevsk, Read!") that took place here in Izhevsk in September. Detailed information on all events of the Year of Literature is available at: godliteratury.ru.


The edition of "The Electronic Dictionary of State Languages of the CIS and Georgia" has been developed in a joint project by the Intergovernmental Fund for Humanities Cooperation among the CIS States and ABBYY. It includes 12 national languages: Azerbaijani, Armenian, Belarusian, Kazakh, Kyrgyz, Moldovan, Tajik, Turkmen, Russian, Uzbek, Ukrainian and Georgian. The project is aimed at supporting and strengthening these languages and developing educational, scientific and cultural cooperation among the states.

V. Seslavinskiy at the XVIII General Meeting of the non-profit partnership "The Library Assembly of Eurasia".
