Slavic and East European Studies

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). CREEES offers M.A. program in Russian, East European and Eurasian Studies. It also offers, together with the Department of Slavic and Eurasian Studies, a minor and a major for Russian, East European, and Eurasian studies. Language instruction is offered in Czech, Polish, Russian, and Serbian/Croatian.

The collection 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 155,000 volumes of books and journals, as well as online resources, CD-ROMs and DVDs. It is housed primarily in the Perry CastaƱeda 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.
