In late 2008, the director of the National Library asked Carol to bring them copies of the two volumes (2000 pages) of South Siberian Oral Literature by V.V. Radloff originally published in St. Petersburg in 1866, and re-published by Indiana University in 1967. She tracked down the books at the University of Washington Library (one of about 20 places that copies are publicly available in the US); contacted the Indiana University Publishers for permission to copy the now out-of-print book; photographed all 2000 pages and delivered the files to Altai. About 30 aficionados of Altaic oral history gathered at the National Library for a throat-singing concert and formal announcement of the materials. Throat-singing is the means by which oral history is passed in Altai.
