Eastern Europe has produced some of the most important cultural, political and scientific developments in modern history, and continues to profoundly shape world affairs. The Slavic and East European Collections at UNC-Chapel Hill Libraries are vital to the research, teaching and learning of UNC faculty, students, staff and all residents of North Carolina who seek to understand this complex region. Our collections support scholars of Russian, Czech, Polish, Hungarian, Serbian, Croatian, Bosnian, Ukrainian, Bulgarian and Slovak studies, research on former states (Soviet Union, Czechoslovakia, Yugoslavia), as well as comparative and cross-disciplinary inquiry into the entire region (Central Europe, Southeast Europe, the Caucasus, Baltic States, Soviet Central Asia). Our unique holdings serve scholars throughout the United States and worldwide.
