In 2007, the Kaunas Studies Group of Kaunas County Public Library (KCPL) started developing an electronic directory, Kaunas: Dates and Facts. Its aim is to create an easily accessible e-directory, attractively presenting systematic textual and visual information about Kaunas* – from its origins to the present. The e-directory is being developed in collaboration with research institutions and experts, as well as museums, archives and owners of collections.
The e-directory is primarily targeted at those who have no direct access to the library, museum, or guide services. Its users represent different social groups and occupations, foreigners who come to Kaunas for studies or work, Lithuanian emigrants, etc. The e-directory is being regularly updated and supplemented with new textual and visual information, references; inaccurate facts are being corrected.
