Employees of the Ukrainian Book Institute (UBI) have created two catalogues of Ukrainian books (children’s and adult literature) and the catalogue usage guide, as well as made a list of distributors, able to provide those books.
The catalogues include the latest and most topical book titles for children and adults, published by Ukrainian publishers. Thus, the catalogues are a very convenient and efficient tool for quick replenishment of libraries abroad.
We believe that by distributing catalogues of Ukrainian books among the international library community we can help Ukrainians abroad get access to books in Ukrainian. It has been scientifically proven that reading in one’s native tongue reduces stress for those forced to leave for other countries, which is why we are not only supporting our book publishing industry but also giving the feeling of home to those, who are far away.
Ukrainian publishers were engaged in the creation of the catalogues developed by the UBI.
Please, find the catalogues here:
The Catalog Usage Guide can be accessed at the following links:
Please, note that the catalogues are being regularly updated, so you should follow the latest publications and check out their availability in the catalogue.
Thank you in advance for distributing the UBI’s catalogues and Ukrainian books abroad.
Ukrainian books in each library all over the world!
The UBI team
EBLIDA, NAPLE and PL2030 sent letters to Ms Mariya Gabriel, EU Commissioner for Innovation, Research, Culture, Education and Youth, and to Ms Themis Christophidou, Director-General Directorate-General for Education, Youth, Sport and Culture (EAC) of the European Commission, calling for a funding programme for displaced Ukrainian librarians via Erasmus +.
We hope that these letters will receive a positive answer. Meanwhile, please do diffuse this information as widely as possible and send us details about libraries which may possibly be interested in implementing a programme of exchange.
Today, when Ukraine is fighting against Russian aggression and millions of Ukrainians are forced to leave their homes and seek refuge in other countries, we thank all governments and peoples of those countries for support.
We know how much work your governments and your libraries are doing with Ukrainian refugees. We are very grateful to you for that.
Many of you have asked us for advice on how and where to buy books in Ukrainian. We know that in some countries active cooperation has begun with the Ukrainian Book Institute and some Ukrainian publishers and libraries, and books in Ukrainian are already being published and delivered to you.
Perhaps, in addition to printed books, you also offer readers electronic ones in your libraries through specific electronic platforms. Please send us information with which aggregators or publishers in your country your libraries are collaborating for purchase or ebook subscription. In our opinion, it will be good if there will also be books in Ukrainian on these platforms.
We want to help Ukrainian publishers do that.
Therefore, please provide us with the following information:
- Ebook platform name and url;
- the name of the company that owns this platform and the url;
- contact person in the company (name, e-mail, tel.).
Please send information to firstname.lastname@example.org by May 5, 2022.
We will be grateful for your help!
