"We believe in complex nature of knowledge. The digital form of Presidential Library helps to combine text electronic copies, video and audio from archives, museums, media, and universities collections ", - emphasized Alexander Vershinin, director general of the Presidential Library. The collection contains books, historical materials and scientific texts (including abstracts and monographs), periodicals, multimedia and much more.
