Chronology of editions
Croatian Encyclopaedia, the new great general encyclopaedia of the Institute of Lexicography, is its fundamental edition and one of the central, permanent programmes of the national culture. It was initiated in 1999, and is the fifth undertaking of this kind in the Croatian language, following the Croatian Encyclopaedia by Mate Ujević.
The Croatian Biographical Lexicon (CBL) is the fundamental edition of The Miroslav Krleža Institute of Lexicography and one of the central, permanent programmes of the national culture. It was intended to become the fundamental addition to the tradition of gathering of biographical data in Croatia, which makes it a major research endeavour.
This publication, Croatia: land and people, has been produced in collaboration with the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs of the Republic of Croatia to mark the entry of Croatia into the European Union. It is primarily intended for the huge public in the other member states and for all those who want or need information about the newest EU member.
The potential of the Miroslav Krleža Institute of Lexicography lies in the huge resources of created and stored knowledge, which are continuously being digitised, and as such it is becoming accessible to a large number of users via the Institute's web pages. The development of the Institute's repository of digitised archival editions was initiated in 2009, when the Portal of Knowledge was made available online. It offers free access to more than 60,000 articles from seven digitised encyclopaedias and lexicons.
