Nikolai Danilov, an employee of NArFU Intellectual Center — E.I. Ovsyankin Scientific Library, has visited Stormen Library and Nord University Library in the framework of the project “BiblioBridge: Bridging Libraries Across Borders: Towards New Vision and Role in Society”. The project is supported by the Norwegian Barents Secretariat and aimed at developing cooperation in information and library technologies, culture and education.
During his visit associated with the Days of the Arctic Mr. Danilov presented to the Norwegian colleagues and students his own original creation - the board game «Arctic Sailors» - and told about the Russian history of Arctic exploration.
One of the project’s goals consists in introducing Norwegian readers to Russian culture and literature. In this context, the audience was shown a series of booktrailers created by NArFU students and dedicated to Russian and Norwegian literary classics.
One of the highlights of the visit was a friendly online chess game between the representatives of NArFU Chess Academy and students from Nord University. The parties also discussed the initiative of a chess competition between Arctic universities.
In 2016 Nikolai Danilov participated in the Arctic Floating University expedition. The photos of the Arctic taken during the expedition provided the basis for the exposition «Hello, Arctic!» displayed at Stormen Library in Bodø.
