N.I. Lobachevsky Scientific Library adds our catalog to its collection
One cannot overestimate the importance of public libraries for today’s society: they provide free access to valuable knowledge and information and often act as community centers. With the help of the libraries that already included our book in their collections, we are getting closer to achieving the main goal of this publication — introducing as many people as possible to the artistry of Russian iconographic art.
N.I. Lobachevsky Scientific Library is situated in Kazan. It was founded in 1804 and has been functioning as a publicly accessible library since the 1820s. The library is part of the Kazan Federal University, an alma mater to many important historical figures, including the writer Leo Tolstoy and the poet Velimir Khlebnikov. We wholeheartedly thank N.I. Lobachevsky Scientific Library for the official letter, confirming that our book has been added to its collection!
Apart from N.I. Lobachevsky Scientific Library, the catalog of Russian icons from the collection of Oleg Kushnirskiy can be found in the Scientific Library of the State Tretyakov Gallery, the Library of the Moscow Kremlin Museums, the Library of the Moscow Orthodox Theological Academy, the Scientific Library of the State Hermitage Museum, and other libraries in Russia and beyond.
Another notable library to add our catalog to its collection is the Novgorod Regional Universal Scientific Library. It is a great honor to have our book available at the largest library in the Novgorod Region.
