Ukrainian Monograph Bibliography

page decoration

This page lists those monography bibliographies that are not limited to any particular subject. The titles listed here include bibliographies that have extensive, general lists of monographic publications. Some, like Levitskyi, that are included here list periodical titles as well. In all cases, the bibliographic sources here might be overlooked since they do not have a subject focus. They are important titles that will be of interest to any scholar working on Ukrainian material. Some of the catalogs listed here are not limited to Ukrainian material but have such extensive holdings that they should not be overlooked. One title not held in our collection was a 1985 publication Bibliohrafichni posobnyky URSR. This bibliographic guide would be useful for anyone trying to identify bibliographic publications on Ukraine.

One of the unusual features of this bibliography is the amount of illustrative material reproduced in its pages. More than two thirds of the second volume and the majority of the first are taken up with reproductions of illustrative material from the works described in the bibliography. This material has its own index in each volume making this a valuable resource for early printed Ukrainian religious art. The volumes also have name, subject and tipographer indexes. The entries are arranged chronologically. Each volume has a detailed introduction explaining the arrangement and selection of materials.

Also note that the volume is divided into two parts, the first containing entries for publications issued from 1918-1929 and the second containing entries for items issued in 1930. While the original publication is quite rare a reprint edition edited and with a foreward by Dmytro Shtohryn was published in 1966 in Chicago. The entries in this volume list the full contents of each publication making it a valuable resource for the verification of Ukrainian publications in the very difficult period immediately following the Russian Revolution. The volume's organization mirrors that of the Academy with publications divided by institute. There are numerous indexes: an index of names, subjects, departments in the Academy and editors. It is an important source for a complete picture of the intellectual output of the Ukrainian Academy as the Soviet bibliograpy does not include the 1918 publications.

There is also an index of periodical articles and a catalog of dissertations. The user may search by a range of fields. The interface is in Ukrainian and requires the use of Cyrillic fonts.

screenshot of the search feature on the web-site


A search in the catalog on the terms "knyha" and "Ukrainy" returned a list with a number of records. The records provide only brief information.

When we searched the catalog we were using a standard Windows Ukrainian font. The one difficulty with this keyboard is that the "$" is not available on that keyboard and the character is used as the "wildcard" character in this catalog. Thus, it is necessary to type each search term in full to get an accurate result.

Numerous links will assist any scholar interested in Ukraine in finding other sites with electronic journals, newspapers, search engines and other resources. There is also an extensive list of links to other Ukrainian libraries.
