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.

The architecture of the National Library of Belarus has redefined the idea of how the main book depository of the country should look like. The form of the rhombic dodecahedron, invented by Leonardo Da Vinci, is complex and at the same time spectacular, therefore it is not surprising that the Library, “diamond of knowledge”, was included in the rating of 100 architectural masterpieces of the world.
