Slavic and East European Studies

Slavic and East European Library Collections at UCLA

Presently numbering well over 325,000 titles, the collections consist of materials from and relating to Russia and the rest of the former Soviet Union, as well as Poland, the Czech and Slovak Republics, the former Yugoslavia, the Baltic countries, Bulgaria, Albania, Hungary, Romania, and the Sorbs in Germany. Especially noteworthy are the Armenian collection (the largest in the country) and holdings in Hungarian language, literature, and folklore. Current and retrospective materials in all languages are collected in print, microform, and electronic formats and include monographs, serial publications, reference works, dissertations, and conference proceedings.

The UCLA Slavic and East European collections support undergraduate, graduate, teaching and research activities for a number of campus academic departments, organized research units, and interdepartmental degree programs. Principal among these are the Departments of Slavic Languages and Literatures, History, Political Science, Sociology, Economics, the Center for European and Russian Studies, and the interdepartmental program in European Studies.

Most area materials are housed in the Charles E. Young Research Library, which concentrates on acquiring research-level area materials in the humanities and social sciences. Publications in other disciplines are collected by specialized campus libraries: the Biomedical Library, the Science and Engineering Libraries, the Arts Library, the Music Library, the Law Library, the Management Library and the Maps and Government Information Library collect area materials in their particular subject fields. The College Library collects area materials in a broad range of subjects at the undergraduate level.
