Slavic and Eurasian Studies Research Guide

About

The University of Texas Libraries' collection of Slavic and Eurasian studies materials supports the academic programs on campus that are offered by the Department of Slavic and Eurasian Studies and the Center for Russian, East European and Eurasian Studies (CREEES). It supports to some extent all aspects of the programs, but its primary strengths are in Russian language and literature and Russian and Soviet history, which together comprise well over half of the total number of works.

Next in size and scope is the collection in Czech language and literature. There is also a substantial number of works representing Czech-American culture. Altogether the collection of Slavic and Eurasian studies materials comprises approximately 153,000 volumes of books and journals, 500 titles on microfilm, nearly 300 current serials subscriptions and many more older holdings, as well as important online resources and CD-ROMs. It is housed primarily in the Perry Castañeda Library, but important materials are also found in the Fine Arts Library and the Architecture and Planning Library. A substantial body of specialized scientific materials in Russian can be found in the Walter Geology Library and the Marine Science Library.
