Russian, East European and Eurasian Studies: Web Portals

Guide to bibliographic resources, electronic and print focused on the region.

Web Portals

There are as many strategies for searching the web as there are scholars.  One used frequently by our librarians is to go use Google's language tools to access the regional Google directory and then check the list of links under literature.  Some will have subsections for full-text cites.
