Except for the unique bibliography of biography as a discipline described at the end, this page serves as a hyper-linked outline or table of contents to the biographical resources for Russia contained in this guide. N.B. If sources fall into several categories, they are cross-referenced within the individual pages and not in this outline.

This unusual source is a bibliography of works about the various disciplines and issues that comprise the interdisciplinary nature of the study of biography, or biografika, as the Russians call it. Including citations for books, journal and newspaper articles, dissertations and manuscripts, the work is divided into 2 main sections: biografika issues and the interdisciplinary context of those issues. The two sections are further subdivided into more defined categories such as the history of biografika, biographical genres, biography of various professions, genealogical issues and more philosophical topics related to biografika. Although this source will not help you to find biographical information, it may be of interest to those who would like to learn more about biography as a human research endeavor.
