On June 5−6, Director of the National Library of Belarus Roman Motulsky took part in the 10th International IT Forum in Khanty-Mansiysk (Tyumen Oblast, the Russian Federation).

The International IT Forum is an effective discussion platform, where the current trends of information and communication technologies are considered and tools for promoting new technology development are sought. Traditionally, the BRICS countries (Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa) and the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) are participating in the forum.

On June 5, within the framework of a working visit to the State Library of Yugra, Roman Motulsky presented the international publishing project on the reproduction of the book heritage of Francysk Skaryna, implemented jointly with the BelVEB Bank. He also acquainted the colleagues with the history of the “Belarusian Diamond”, its architectural features and information resources. Sharing plans for the current year, Director Roman Motulsky told about a new, no less significant project of the library – a facsimile re-creation of the first Slavic ABC-Book, the 400th anniversary of which the Belarusians mark in 2018.

Today, on June 6, within the framework of the IT Forum, a round table on "Strategic Directions of Using New Information Technologies in Culture" was held. Roman Motulsky presented a report "The Activity of the National Library of Belarus for the Preservation of Historical and Cultural Heritage through Digital Technologies" and signed the Agreement on cooperation between the State Library of Yugra and the National Library of Belarus.

Take a look at your bookshelf. Closer. What does it remind you of? An uneven row of books of all sizes and colours? Perfectly even row, where everything is arranged exactly in alphabetical order? Chaotically volumes thrown on each other mixed with postcards and magazine inserts? Whatever is in your bookcase, you've probably thought about sorting it at least once. Home libraries always look flawless in photographs and in movies – if only it were like this at home! It's time to dust off the spines and learn about ways to tidy up your bookshelves. And to figure out how the National Library is doing it.
