As I have promised previously, here is a list of newly published books and articles on J. R. R. Tolkien’s fiction. I have already included them into my ‘big’ bibliography :-)
In the fall of 2014 we finished our bibliographical database on history of Russia in World War I, it didn’t function for a while after the fire, but they have just restored it from a backup. It’s available at http://www.inion.ru/I_publ.html and contains information about books and articles from the library of our institute, that is, about almost everything published in Russia and also about some foreign publications. We’ll probably be able later to add information about books available at some other major libraries as well. The interface is only in Russian, but it’s quite simple. Search by author, title, annotation and keywords is available, there’s also a subject directory. Each reference in the search results has a list of tags, each of them is a link to the list of corresponding references. My role was mainly the communication to the programmers.
As I have promised previously, here is a list of newly published books and articles on J. R. R. Tolkien’s fiction. I’ve included also indexes of the library of the Institute of Scientific Information for Social Sciences, in case if anybody tries to find any of these things there: information about new books usually appears in our electronic catalogue with a delay, it’s a paradox of the out-of-date software ;-( Continue reading ‘New Literature on Tolkien Studies’ »
I’ve finally published my bibliography on Tolkien studies, or, more exactly, a list of the ‘paper’ (not electronic) publications in Russian that appeared in the post-Soviet time and haven’t been posted in the Internet yet, and of the papers in English, French and German that can be found in Russian libraries. I am going to add new references every few months or so. Each update will be posted in the blog at the same time, so that it would be more easy to trace them :-)
A new section on history of the First World War has appeared on the website of our institute: http://www.inion.ru/ww1 (in Russian). Now it contains preprints of a collection of abstracts and reviews Russia in the First World War: New Directions of Research and of a bibliographical index of literature of 1991–2011, that were prepared by a group of our researchers (including me ;-)) for a grant of the Russian Humanitarian Research Foundation, and also some abstracts that were published in recent years and were not in an open access in the Internet until now. I hope we’ll add some more information next year :-)
