The Dr. Franc Sušnik Central Carinthian Library (Ravne na Koroškem) has digitized all editions of two bulletins - Koroški
and Informativni fužinar
, and the Metal
newspaper. The project was for many years among digitization priorities as there was a rather high demand for those resources. Taken together, this means 110 yearbooks and about 22,000 pages of newspapers that were published in the Ravne ironworks.
When writing about the functioning of the Ravne ironworks, the history of the Carinthian towns and industry, national habits, chronicles parishes, associations ... were also presented.
All three newspapers will remain a valuable source for many users, individuals, workers, ironworkers as well researchers and journalists.
At the end of the exhibition Take a Right Decision!
, the first part of the interview with the architect Tone Mlakar
will be posted on the dLib.si
. During the World War II, he was a member of the partisan technical illegal propaganda section; its original material was also displayed at the exhibition. The video focuses on Mlakar’s memories on his professor Jože Plečnik
at whom Mlakar graduated in 1954.
Until November 7 2015, the exhibition Propaganda during the World War II on the Slovenian Territory
can be seen in the Library Exhibition Hall. Original copies were printed in improvised printing houses across Slovenia. The majority of papers were created by various military groups. Some covers of the serial publications are real works of art. Cultural material served for propaganda purposes - Prešeren, Cankar, Jurčič, Gregorčič and, of course, poets of that time for instance Kajuh, awakened national consciousness. Visual art also served propaganda: posters were created by artists like Ive Subic, France Mihelič, Nikolaj Pirnat and many others. The material is being gradually digitized; in the first phase you can browse through the virtual exhibition of scatter handbills
that carried brief but essential messages of that time.
