Columbia University Libraries
Russian, East European and Eurasian vernacular language holdings are estimated to consist of over one million monographic titles, adding approximately 14,000 titles each year. This includes the historic, and growing Post-Soviet Nationalities Collection of more than 20,000 titles in 59 languages of the Russian Federation, Central Asia and the Caucasus.
The Libraries subscribe to all significant sources of electronic information from and about the region, including bibliographic databases and full-text repositories of current newspapers, government documents, and scholarly journals.
Through an innovative partnership with the Cornell University Library, Columbia’s collections are developed in coordination with those in Ithaca, dramatically reducing duplication while creating a more expansive research resource. This work is coordinated by the Columbia Librarian for Russian, East European and Eurasian Studies. Through the efficient BorrowDirect Network, students and faculty have borrowing privileges at all of the Ivy League institutions, plus M.I.T.
