During last week, we released the monographs in Nenets and Selkup available in our Fenno-Ugrica collection. Sven-Erik Soosaar, a researcher of Tundra Nenets at the Institute of the Estonian Language (EKI) gives us a brief overview to this material and discusses the status of Samoyedic languages, which are at the edge of extinction, or have already perished.
The third set of monographs received from The National Library of Russia is now available at Fenno-Ugrica.New arrivals consist of 54 monographs in Nenets and 12 in Selkup.

We recently published the first material produced in the continued Digitisation Project of Kindred Languages in the Fenno-Ugrica collection, a total of 75 monographs in the Mari languages. To discuss this material, we met with Finno-Ugrian researcher Mrs Julia Kuprina, a project researcher at the Morphological Analyzers for Minority Finno-Ugrian Languages project. We spoke with her about the material in the collections, her own research in language technologies, and naturally also the Hill Mari language.
The pace of releasing the new material is steady, but rapid in deed. In two weeks’ intervals, we are receiving new deliveries from the National Library of Russia (Saint Peterburg). Not long ago, we made the monographs in Mari languages available for the public in Fenno-Ugrica and now 72 monographs in Khanty and Mansi are in our collection too.
