Despite the fact that the air-condition was doing its best, it was hot indeed! The heat was raised by the audience, which came to witness the launch of the Fenno-Ugrica collection and research tools for the linguists at the fully packed auditorium at the National Library of Finland on last Thursday – we had fun, we had joy, we had great discussions. Thanks for all of you, who were present in person or online through the ACP connection.
The National Library of Finland has published the Fenno-Ugrica online collection of Finno-Ugrian material as well as the related researcher services. The collection contains about 17,000 pages of publications in the Ingrian and Veps languages, totalling more than 120 monographs, of which most are textbooks and dictionaries published in the Soviet Union. In addition to the books, the digitised material includes close to 20,000 pages of Mari and Mordvin newspapers from the 1920s and 1930s.
