Slavonic and East European Collections

The British Library's collections in the field of Slavonic, East European and Soviet Studies are the largest in the UK, and probably in Western Europe. The policy of the East European Section is to acquire, as widely as possible, material of research value published in all Slavonic and East European languages covering subjects in the humanities and social sciences.
