Mongolian Culture Website: www.Mongolianculture.com
From the Leeds University Library Webpage
Mongolian Culture, an online resource from the New York based Indo-Mongolian Society, aims to introduce its users to contemporary Mongolian culture, recommend wider online and print resources, and to provide information on the society's activities. The main page contains several photographic images of Mongolian life and culture, along with links to a map of Mongolia, and texts on Mongolian law, culture, art and history. From this page, users can also navigate to lists of online and print resources on Mongolia. Print resources are classified by essential and recommended reading, and there is also an online excerpt from a translation of The Secret History of the Mongols. Users will also find a long list of online resources on Mongolian history, including images, articles and reading lists. Other collections of alternative gateways cover: news; culture; and art.
The website also features its own textual introduction to Mongolian culture, and provides more extended information on a number of topics, including: films about Mongolia; Mongolian dance; the horse in Mongolian culture; and Mongolian storytelling. The website reproduces five papers given by speakers at the Indo-Mongolia Society. In addition, users will find summaries and textual information on the Indo-Mongolia Society's recent and future activities.
