As part of the project to preserve old and fragile books through digitization, 432 such titles published before 1922 have recently been digitized and are accessible directly from HOLLIS. The titles were published in various Slavic countries, and most of them are in various Slavic languages (Russian, Ukrainian, Polish, Church Slavic, Bulgarian, Serbian, Croatian), but there are also a few titles with some content in Chinese, German, French, Korean, English, etc.)

In addition to the images, the library digitization services also provided OCR (optical character recognition), i. e. machine-readable rendition of the text.

In order to see this collection in its entirety in HOLLIS, please enter the search string: Slavic poor paper digitization project and refine your search results by resource type (“Book”) and by format (“show only online”) – you will see the list of all titles in the project.
