Electronic Library of Ukrainian Literature

Home pageDonorsTechnical notes


The Electronic Library of Ukrainian Literature provides free access to electronic texts of Ukrainian literature to all readers, particularly to students outside Ukraine, where texts are often difficult to obtain. Eventually, if funding allows, the library will grow to include translations and author biographies, bibliographies, and other secondary materials pertinent to Ukrainian literature, in both English and Ukrainian. At the moment, resources allow for only a modest project to digitize classic texts of Ukrainian prose.

The library is a personal project of Prof. Maxim Tarnawsky at the University of Toronto. In May of 2002, Serhiy Krasovskyy joined the project. He has initiated contacts with publishers in Ukraine and re-designed the site's main pages. Support for the library comes from the Danylo Husar Struk Programme in Ukrainian Literature of the Canadian Institute of Ukrainian Studies, the University of Toronto, The Bahriany Foundation, Inc., the Ukrainian Studies Fund and Ukrainian publishers, including Krytyka, MOSTY, Kalvaria and Pulsary. For more information about the library's financial support, please see the donors web page. The library is in need of both financial and electronic support. If you are willing to help make the library an effective tool for the study and promotion of Ukrainian literature, please contact Prof. Maxim Tarnawsky (tarn@chass.utoronto.ca ) at the University of Toronto.
