A year of book life: Lviv Polytechnic Publishing House summarizes/draw conclusions of the previous year

The beginning of new year is partly the result of the previous one. We always draw plans for the future, viewing the important events with achievements and results of the previous year. Stéphane Mallarmé claimed "Everything in the world exists in order to end up as a book" and we paraphrase: which books were published in 2014 and which will be in 2015?

Anniversary Books

The year 2014 was the anniversary for Lviv Polytechnic National University — 170 years since the establishment of the first technical school in Ukraine. Four important and thorough publishing projects were prepared and implemented in books on the occasion to the alma mater anniversary.

Great illustrated edition — album "Lviv Polytechnic National University in photos. Part 1 (1844-1990)", which gathered under its cover the photos and documents that illustrate main events, stages of Lviv Polytechnic National University development (since the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy 1844-1918, Inter-War Period 1918-1939, and Polytechnic in 1939-1990). Still in process is the work on the second edition of the album — the modern Polytechnic’s period within 1991-2015.

"Bibliographic Index" Lviv Polytechnic National University in publications (1844-2013)" highlights the significant stages of the university for nearly 170 years: the literature of departments history, research institutes and departments, associations and additional research institutions, bibliographical descriptions of publications and facts about authors — the university prominent figures — are collected.

It could be originally and easy to study the alma mater history with the help of album directory "Commemorative coins, medals and badges — the historic symbols of Lviv Polytechnic National University", as important historical dates and events mirrored on badges, medals and coins. Catalogue is the first attempt to organize/systematize and describe important milestone of the 170-year Polytechnic history in coins.

An architectural atlas "Lviv Polytechnic National University" is to be published soon with the historical and contemporary photographs of the architectural Polytechnic complex origin and formation, with information about the design and construction history of educational and administrative buildings, dormitories, training grounds, sports camps.
