Here is wonderful news from the US – the directory has been updated and available online (see: The Russian Empire and Soviet Union. A Guide to Manuscripts and Archival Materials in the United States/ by Steven A. Grant and John H. Brown; Kennan Institute for Advanced Russian Studies, the Wilson Center. Boston, MA: G.K. Hall, 1981). We congratulate Erika Weir (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign) and Steve Grant on this achievement.
Janet Hartley’s guides (Guide to documents and manuscripts in the United Kingdom relating to Russia and the Soviet Union and Guide to documents and manuscripts in the Irish Republic relating to Russia and the Soviet Union) were published in 1987 and 1994 respectively. Is there a need and appetite for updating and digitising? How one can start a project like this? Something to talk about at the COSEELIS conference in Oxford (4-5 July 2019, St Anne’s College)?
