As our Republic is Finno-Ugric we actively cooperate with libraries and scientific centres of Finno-Ugric regions of near and far foreign countries - Hungary, Finland and Estonia.
The fund of the Finno-Ugric department existing in our library is basically formed due to the international book exchange literature.
Within the years of the existence of our department our library has received more than 2300 copies of literature according to the international book exchange programme. We may say that the international book exchange is one of the most effective sources of acquisition of funds as well as reception of literature in gift.
For several years the Institute for Russian and East European Studies Library (Helsinki, Finland) has been sending us the literature in gift. This library provides us with very interesting, unique and expensive editions.
The Slavic University research Centre in Hokkaido (Japan) traditionally sends to our library the literature in Russian and English languages on history, economy, politics of Russia and its regions.
The assistance on behalf of the Sweden Institute in Stockholm has become traditional, the goal being the distribution and popularization of the information about Sweden and enhancing of interest to learning the Swedish language.
The Embassies of Denmark, Netherlands and Norway also presented us with some literature.
In total we have received more than 2200 copies of literature in gift.
In future we plan to promote the book exchange with the countries of Barents Euro-Arctic region, France and to strengthen the communication with old partners in the International book exchange.
