The Mitzic family’s gift
The university is proud of its outstanding scientists, and the library is proud of its devoted readers. That was exactly Leonid Pavlovich Mitsik - a geobotanist, ecologist, doctor of biological sciences, professor of the department of geobotany, soil science and ecology and a regular reader of the library with more than 30 years of experience. During his lifetime, the professor visited the library very often and repeatedly presented us books and magazines in various fields of knowledge. Today the family of Leonid Pavlovich – his wife, daughter and granddaughters continue this tradition. They presented our library a very pleasant and valuable gift – a significant book collection from the professor’s library. These are more than 200 professional publications on biology, ecology, soil science and research on peat and lawns. In memory of Leonid Pavlovich Mitsik, we are very grateful for this gift and believe that it will be useful to many students and scientists of Ukraine, and the scientist’s work will be the best monument to his fruitful life.
