On 19th July 2020, Vaseeharan Sivalingam contacted DsporA Tamil Archive and shared a common concern. He is the second generation of migrated Tamil from Eelam, who is a poet and the founder of Vaseeharan Creations Sivalingam and Norway Tamil Film Festival. Tamils in Norway, as well as around the world, have published many books and other text documents in Tamil, and other languages about Tamil and Tamils. But there is a lack of Tamil books at Norwegian libraries. If we merely could collect and send all the books by Norwegian-Tamil authors, the library shelves for Tamil section will be filled up.
DsporA Tamil Archive contacted the National Library of Norway (NB) that has the assignment of legal deposit of all Norwegian publications and productions regardless of medium.
