My article in ‘Mediateka i mir’

A few months ago, the Mediateka i mir journal (‘Multimedia library and the world’, the journal is published by the Russian State Library in Moscow, formerly known as ‘the Lenin Library’, and deals with new information and telecommunication technologies, especially in library services) asked me to write a short report about the section ‘Russia in the First World War’ on the website of the Institute of Scientific Information for Social Sciences where I work.  The result is here (in Russian) ;-)  Nothing extraordinary, but nevertheless, one more publication :-)
