Russian Studies

Welcome! Dobro pozhalovat'!

Welcome! Vassar's library is home to more than 15,000 volumes related to Russian language, literature, culture, and history, plus online databases of relevant scholarship, news, and primary sources. Though this guide was created primarily for the use of students in Vassar's Russian Studies Department, students in other departments may also find these resources helpful, including those with a Russian or Soviet focus in history, political science, or international studies.
