Collections

 

Library Collections

The Ukrainian Research Institute's library collection includes reference works and monograph titles that support courses offered by the Ukrainian Studies program in history, literature, and language, and the Harvard Ukrainian Summer Institute. The library holds a substantial Ukrainian reference collection, specialized bibliographies, periodicals, complete works of major authors, and works of Ukrainian scholars in other disciplines.

Special Collections

The chronological extent of the Institute's special collections ranges from 1860 to the present. The material in the collections includes personal documents, correspondence, telegrams, minutes, financial and administrative records, manuscripts, publications, press clippings and photographs. The collections are a particularly important historical resource for the study of Ukraine during the revolutionary years 1917 to 1921, the historical period leading up to and including World War II and Ukrainian refugee and émigré life in Europe and the United States after the war period. The papers and archives are also useful for studying Ukrainian cultural life from the viewpoint of individual lives and institutional activities.
