Western Ukrainian books of 1914–1939 in Canadian libraries: Online catalogues and published sources

Abstract:

Ukrainians are the eleventh largest ethnic group in Canada. Ukrainian books are important for the development of the Ukrainian diaspora, as well as for preserving and advancing the Ukrainian national culture, traditions, and language in Canada. The article analyzes the research of local and foreign scientists on this topic and provides insights into the presence of the Western Ukrainian books in Canadian libraries and in Canadian public and governmental institutions. The article investigates the details of the creation of the libraries where the researched publications are stored. The author has classified Canadian book collections that hold Ukrainian publications: scientific libraries at universities and other higher education institutions; archival institutions; Ukrainian community organizations; religious institutions; public libraries with Ukrainian collections; private Ukrainian libraries. This paper highlights the role of prominent figures of the Ukrainian diaspora in stocking Canadian libraries with Ukrainian books. We have examined how Western Ukrainian books of 1914–1939 made their way to Canadian libraries. An analysis of the catalogues of the Ukrainian bookstores in Canada has been conducted. Rare copies of these catalogues are in the holdings of the Vasyl Stefanyk National Scientific Library of Ukraine in Lviv. The article highlights the role of the Internet sources in determining the availability of Western Ukrainian books in Canadian libraries. Most of these libraries have online catalogues. The prospects of using electronic library resources and digital editions to conduct research in the field of Ukrainian book bibliography are outlined. The presence of the Ukrainian books of 1914–1939 in Canadian libraries is recorded in the bibliographic index «Ukrainian book in Galicia, Bukovina, Transcarpathia, Volyn and in emigration, 1914–1939» compiled by the scientific bibliography researchers of the Vasyl Stefanyk National Scientific Library of Ukraine in Lviv. Some of the Ukrainian books of 1919–1934 held in Canadian libraries and mentioned in the bibliographic index are the only copies of these books available worldwide.

Keywords: Ukrainian diaspora, Western Ukrainian book, interwar period (1914–1939), Canadian libraries, electronic database of book publications
