LIBRARIA. Ukrainian Online Periodicals Archive offers free access to over 30 thousand issues of various Ukrainian periodicals from the 20th century.  

Digitized materials come from the collections of the Scientific Library of the Ivan Franko National University of Lviv and the State Scientific Archival Library and comprise over 400 titles in Ukrainian, Polish, Russian, Yiddish, German, and Crimean Tatar. All these periodicals represent several research focus areas and are thus divided into separate collections, i.e. Propaganda press in the occupied Ukrainian territories in 1941–44, Interwar Jewish press of Galicia, Volhynia and Bukovina, Ukrainian interwar press of Galicia, and Papers of the Shevchenko Scientific Society.

Not only does LIBRARIA feature a very convenient design and data filters by various parameters and categories, but it also offers integrated text search within all the publications.

The Ukrainian Online Periodicals Archive has already digitized over 500,000 pages, and the project authors give the promise of “to be continued”.
