In the press-center of the news agency “Sever-Press” on the 28th of February representatives of the National library of Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Okrug will present the information resource – the Literature map of Yamal “Khorey”. This is a full-scale ethnographic project of the regional level, which collected information about Yamal literature: its history, persons, art-works. The given resource will be interesting for researchers, scientific employees, local historians, teachers, schoolchildren and also people, who are interested in literature life of the region.
People became the basis of the literature map of Yamal: authors, who were at the origins of Yamal literature, who contributed to the origin and development of ethnic literature in the region. Among them there are: Leonid Laptsuy, Roman Rugin, Ivan Istomin, as well as young writers and poets of Yamal — Albert Okotetto, Sofia Nyach, Yulia Nikitina and others. There are 148 authors, 7252 works, and practically every tenth is in languages of indigenous ethnic minorities of the North.
The project would not be possible without municipal libraries: each of them made a great contribution to creation of the map. Collecting, organizing and editing of information — a huge team of professionals from libraries of the region fulfilled the work.
Writers, local historians and literary critics, whose works were published on the resource, are going to discuss the Literature map of Yamal. They will share their impressions of the project, talk about their work and discuss plans for the future.
