Founded in 1976, the Slavic Reference Service is dedicated to providing assistance to individuals conducting research related to the areas of Slavic, East European and Eurasian studies. Our queries originate from the University of Illinois, other U.S. institutions, and scholars and researchers around the world. We also conduct lecture series and research forums, produce original programs, and collaborate with other libraries around the world to expand the relevance and scope of Slavic, East European, and Eurasian studies. The SRS is funded by the Title VIII grant program administered by the Department of State.
