Databases occupy a core position within the research resources of the Slavic, East European, and Eurasian Collections. Below is a curated selection of starting points and popular databases related to Russian, Eastern European, and Eurasian Studies. To increase the amount and specificity of the databases listed, we have combined listings from the REES Recommended Databases document with the databases originally posted on this page.

General Databases

While the scope of the databases highlighted on this page is necessarily focused on Russian, Eastern European, and Eurasian Studies, the team at the Slavic Reference Service has found it helpful to also highlight databases of a more general variety. These databases are recommended for their general utility across a variety of subject areas and academic fields. While not comprehensive, this list of resources should act as a good starting point for researchers in most fields.
