Preserving and Digitalisation of Antiquarian Prints and
Rare Books from the
Collection of the National University of Ostroh Academy

About the project

The National University of Ostroh Academy preserves valuable book collections, which are an essential part of Ukrainian and European cultural heritage. The history of the formation of these collections is also of paramount importance. Most rare editions the university received as a gift from the private collections of patrons, friends, and the institution’s revival associates. The book fund expanded thanks to the contributions of well-known public figures, scientists, public organisations and scientific institutions from Ukraine and abroad. For 28 years of its incipience, the young university’s staff has formed thousands of book collections. Among the books are rare editions in the Museum of the NaUOA History and the Lubomyr Wynar Institute for the Ukrainian Diaspora Studies.
