TSU philologists will collect all the texts about Siberia
Scientists in the Faculty of Philology and staff of the TSU Research Library are creating an electronic encyclopedia “The Verbal Culture of Siberia”. In it, researchers plan to collect artistic, journalistic, and scientific texts about the Siberian region.
In the pilot version of the encyclopedia, the results of studies of the social and cultural specifics of Siberia on the basis of analysis of Siberian literature, records of folklore, and colloquial speech of Siberians will be reflected in popular scientific and hypertext form for the first time. The encyclopedia will include archival, expeditionary, and Siberian and central Russian materials extracted from periodicals for the first time. Articles will contain references to digitized documents, the originals of which are stored in the funds of the Research Library.
