Slavic and Eastern European Studies: Home

Describes research sources for Russia, Eastern Europe, and the former Soviet Union.

Welcome! Добро пожаловать!

Welcome to the Slavic Studies library guide.  Whether you are studying the Russian language, taking a literature course, or are just interested in learning something new about another part of the world, this guide is for you.

The emphasis of our language collections is on the Russian language.  We also collect materials related to the study of other Slavic languages.  For non-language topics, this guide covers the Russian Federation, countries that were formally part of the Soviet Union, and countries in Central and Eastern Europe that were once part of the Warsaw Pact region.
