Welcome to Digital Resources for Eastern Europe, Central Asia and the Caucasus!

This guide will introduce you to the databases available at UCLA for digital archives, newspapers, and journals for Eastern Europe, Central Asia and the Caucasus.

Resources with the key symbol are available to UCLA students, staff, and faculty on-campus and remotely, since it is a paid subscription. Non-UCLA patrons are welcome to visit the library to access these resources once the UCLA campus re-opens.   


We at the library understand the difficulty of accessing resources as UCLA transitions completely to online instruction for Spring quarter. During this time, we encourage students, faculty, and staff to utilize and enjoy our growing digital collections for Slavic studies. Use the Newspaper Archives, Journal Archives, and Art & Performance Publications tabs to the left to explore the electronic collections.

COVID-19: Library Information, Resources, & Print Access

 

As part of UCLA's transition to remote instruction, and the Library's necessary decision to close all Library locations, access to print resources and special collections is not available. Please take advantage of electronic resources such as ebooks and article databases. The UCLA community can connect to these online resources off-campus via the VPN or proxy server. Interlibrary loan is still available for electronic journal articles; however, ebooks cannot be borrowed on interlibrary loan. You can also temporarily access digitized print books via HathiTrust, although you cannot download or print these books--only do screenshots.

The library is also extending access to our print collection beyond what's available in HathiTrust through the Pilot Emergency Temporary Digititzation on Request Service (PETDOR). Please review the PETDOR FAQ for guidance on using this service. 

For help with any of our resources, please schedule an appointment with a librarian (audio/video Zoom appointments available), contact your subject librarian directly, or use our 24/7 chat service.    

    

Access to Online Resources

The Library's online subscription resources can always be accessed from computers and wireless networks on campus. However, off-campus access is restricted to current UCLA, students, faculty, and staff who have set up their computer using one of the following methods.
