Novosibgiz (Novosibirsk Regional State Publishing House), Novosibirsk

Новосибгиз (Новосибирское Областное Государственное Издательство), Новосибирск

In 1937, an east and west territorial division of Siberia created the Novosibirsk Region. In October that year, the Novosibirsk Regional Book Publishing House was placed under the OGIZ (Association of the State Book and Magazine Publishers) banner whereby it became Novosibgiz. The history of Novosibgiz begins in 1920 when it was founded as Novosibirsk Book Publishing House. Based in the city of Omsk, Novosibirsk Book Publishing functioned as the Siberian branch of the State Publishing House of the Russian Socialist Federative Soviet Republic. In 1921, the publisher moved from Omsk to Novonikolaevsk (Novosibirsk), and in 1922, it was reorganized into the Siberian State Publishing House (Sibgosizdat). In the mid-1920s, it was again restructured to become the Siberian Territorial Publishing House (Sibkraiizdat).
