The basis for the creation of the Biographical Lexicon of Famous and Notable People from Lower Carniola (Dolenjska) was material for the Biographical Lexicon of Lower Carniola by Karl Bačer from 2004. The material was published in book form by the Miran Jarc Library and Novo mesto soon prepared a digital version of the lexicon. Originally, a little less than three thousand biographical records about people who are important for the Lower Carniola in various ways were included in the lexicon. The list of names included people from the geographically wider territory of Lower Carniola, and today we selectively preserve and only supplement passwords that relate to areas covered by the Novo Mesto Library.
We invite you to send us proposals for inclusion in the lexicon by email: email@example.com or via the online form.
