What People Are Saying

Alan P. Pollard PhD.
Alan P. Pollard, PhD, Librarian Emeritus, University of Michigan
This guide is the FIRST COMPREHENSIVE SURVEY of the Slavic and East European collections of North America in the last 45 years. It moves beyond noting the amounts and categories of Slavic materials held by each repository to providing the broadest possible access to the resources. This information will be welcomed by researchers as well as librarians and archivists. The winning strategy of this guide is to provide data, such as contact persons and Web sites, that lead to yet more information.
Semion Lyandres PhD.
Semion Lyandres, PhD, Associate Professor of Russian History, University of Notre Dame
AN INDISPENSABLE REFERENCE TOOL. . . . With more than 80 collections surveyed, this new guide is ESSENTIAL FOR EVERY COLLEGE LIBRARY. . . . Ambitious in scope and carefully researched, this pioneering reference book represents the first comprehensive attempt to offer up-to-date information on virtually all Slavic collections in North America. The editors identify printed, electronic, and manuscript resources held by university libraries, public and private museums, religious institutions, historical societies, and private collections with material relating to all periods or aspects of Slavic studies. They describe information stored electronically and resources at hand as well as providing contact and access information for each institution. Relevant bibliographies are also listed, as are other matters of importance to prospective visitors.
