The European Library

As the website states "The European Library is a free service that offers access to the resources of the 48 national libraries of Europe in 35 languages. Resources can be both digital (books, posters, maps, sound recordings, videos, etc.) and bibliographical. Quality and reliability are guaranteed by the 48 collaborating national libraries of Europe."

This is an enormously valuable site. It was first launched on the Internet as Gabriel in 1995. Since that time it has expanded its services. Today, it provides a gateway to a wide range of information on almost all the national libraries, as can be seen from the home page.

Erik Herron's Guide to Politics in East Central Europe and Eurasia

URL: http://web.ku.edu/~herron/
Erik Herron's Guide to Post Communist States on the Web

This site is sponsored by the University of Kansas Center for Russian and East European Studies. It offers a gateway to information on the politics and governments of the region. The sites also offer some resources on the information policy of the region as it stood in 1999. Both sites are organized by country. Each country page is divided into sections on central government ministries and agencies, institutes and NGOs, news and media, political parties, regional sites, miscellaneous sites and search engines. The miscellaneous sites vary wildly in content from sites women's issues to sites on the weather. The political sites are very useful and the excellent organization of the site makes it a very useful gateway for political information. The access to a wide range of search engines also makes it a useful site for listings of vernacular language search engines.

This, again, is a site with a broad interdisciplinary usage and can be useful to those simply looking for newspaper resources to those who simply want to find some search engines for a region.

REEESWEB

One of the best and most comprehensive sites on Slavic studies the Russian and East European Site at the University of Pittsburgh has recently undergone a facelift. The new site is easier to search than its predecessor. It still remains a central point for the listing of sites in the Slavic field and is an excellent starting point, especially for Western sites on Slavic studies.
