Duke University Library's extensive collection of Slavic reference works includes such items as archival guides, dictionaries, encyclopedias, and atlases, in both analog and digital formats. To find additional reference works on Slavic, Eurasian, and East European Studies, click on the "Perkins Reference Collection" under "Specific Formats and Collections" in the Duke Libraries tab of the library's online catalog and enter your search terms. You can also limit your query to digital reference materials by performing a basic keyword search on your topic and adding the word "electronic?"
In addition to the resources and suggestions discussed in this subject guide, students and scholars may also wish to consult the detailed and extensively-annotated online Guide to Slavic, Eurasian, and East European Information Resources maintained by the staff of the University of Illinois Slavic and East European Library, one of the leading centers of Slavic librarianship in the United States. The University of Illinois library also runs the Slavic Reference Service, a free year-round service that handles reference questions for materials in the languages of Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union. Note that all the call numbers in this guide are for the University of Illinois; check the Duke Library catalog for local holdings. For an expert discussion of specifically Russian Reference Works (Stanford University), consult the outstanding reference guide created by Wojciech Zalewski, the long-time Slavic librarian at Stanford University, on the model of his book, Fundamentals of Russian Reference Work in the Humanities and Social Sciences.
