Liiketila art collective and Minority Languages Project of the National Library Finland have launched a crowdsourcing, or perhaps even a nichesourcing task for the public, aiming to collect spoken Uralic languages to be utilized in an art performance called MAA (land, soil, nation, ground, earth, country).
Fenno-Ugrica, an online collection for materials in Uralic languages at the National Library of Finland, has reached new milestones. Since its launch in June 2013, there has been more than 250 000 downloads from this collection up to date. On Sunday, we passed by another landmark: 150 000 downloads in 2015 alone.
Since the very beginning of the Digitization Project of Kindred Languages, our objective has been the securing the wider-than-usual availability of new corpora, which do base to the digitized material. Our primary intention has to spread the Fenno-Ugrica data to such tools and environments, which are made available for both, the academic and the language communities.
The Helsinki Book Fair is about to begin in a week. The theme country of this year’s event is Russia, thus we wanted to highlight our services related to Russian studies and Uralic languages. Naturally, the Digitization Project of Kindred Languages will be present in this event at the National Library’s stand (6e71). Please, find here a brief summary of our programme at the Book Fair.
