Search the archives of Russia within the comfort
your own home or research institution!
The Russian Archive is a new service for scholars and lovers of Russian history, literature, culture and art.
The Russian Archive is your link to ALL archival collections found in Russia's archives, libraries and museums, including those recently declassified and open to all scholars.
The Russian Archive is a multi-lingual technical resource team which serves as a link between foreign researchers and the curators of Russia's archival collections. The Russian Archive collects and processes requests for information or for materials (historical documents, manuscripts, works of art, etc.), coordinates searches with leading archive curators and then sends the material to researchers in a format which is convenient to use and easy to transmit.
Most initial searches (checks to see whether your request can be fulfilled) can be processed in 5-7 days.
As a special service for scholars planning to travel to Moscow for archival research, The Russian Archive can conduct initial archival searches and do other preparatory work, saving scholars time and expense.
