Internet Encyclopedia of Ukraine

To those who receive the Internet Encyclopedia of Ukraine monthly
newsletter for the first time:

In some not so mythical future, the Internet Encyclopedia of Ukraine (IEU)
will be the most comprehensive source of general information in English on
all aspects of Ukraine (its history, people, geography, society, economy,
diaspora, and cultural heritage). It will contain over 20,000 detailed
encyclopedic entries supplemented with thousands of maps, photographs,
illustrations, tables, and other graphic and audio materials.

At present, only 20% (over 4,000 articles) of the entire database is
available on the site. Many of these entries are not yet supplemented with
illustrations and audio files (e.g., musical works described in the text).
New entries are being edited, updated, and added daily. However, this
process will require much time, effort, and financing. 

At any time, you can view the materials currently available on our site. To
do this, visit:
http://www.encyclopediaofukraine.com/
and search for particular names or entries, using the TITLE SEARCH box in
the top right corner to locate entries such as "Kyivan Rus," "Cossacks,"
"Carpathian Mountains," "Archipenko, Alexander," "Khmelnytsky, Bohdan,"
"Ukrainians," and many others (type any part of a name or entry you are
searching for).
You can also use the ADVANCED SEARCH functions (at:
http://www.encyclopediaofukraine.com/advanced.asp) to find information on
subjects that do NOT yet have their own entries, but are discussed in
various other entries.

Every month I send out an IEU newsletter in which I feature some particular
topic or group of topics. For example, the October 2006 newsletter deals
with ethnocultural features of Ukrainians and the history of the Ukrainian
language.

Past newsletters are gathered on several thematic pages that will
eventually create "short" compiled descriptions of Ukraine from various
points of view ("History," "People," "Land," etc.). For example, the March
2006 newsletter on Prince Volodymyr the Great and the Christianization of
Ukraine can be found on the "History" page at:
http://www.encyclopediaofukraine.com/history.asp
The April 2006 newsletter on Mykola Khvylovy and the Ukrainian cultural
renaissance of the 1920s can be found on the "Literature" page at:
http://www.encyclopediaofukraine.com/literature.asp
The May 2006 newsletter on the region of Transcarpathia in southwestern
Ukraine can be found on the "Land" page at:
http://www.encyclopediaofukraine.com/land.asp
The June 2006 newsletter on the Ukrainian folk beliefs and mythology can be
found on the "People" page at:
http://www.encyclopediaofukraine.com/people.asp
The August 2006 newsletter on the Brotherhoods in early modern Ukraine can
be found on the "Culture" page at:
http://www.encyclopediaofukraine.com/culture.asp
The September 2006 newsletter on the Ukrainian impressionist painters can
be found on the "Art" page at:
http://www.encyclopediaofukraine.com/art.asp
etc.

These pages can also be reached by clicking on the buttons around the IEU
sunflower logo, such as "History" or "Land," on the IEU homepage.

You are welcome to send me queries and requests for entries that are not
yet on our site (I will try to deal with them as soon as I can). Entries on
contemporary Ukraine, however, will not be available for some time.

If you do not want to receive the IEU newsletter, please let me know. If
you know of other people who would like to receive the IEU newsletter,
please tell them to send me their e-mail address.

Enjoy!
