At A Glance
Of the 6 million volumes currently
held by Duke University Library:
453,547 (or 3.5%) are part of
the Slavic collection.
Of that number 329,434
volumes are in Slavic
124,113 in Western
European languages.
By the terms of the existing
cooperative collection development
agreement between the members of
TRLN, Duke is responsible for
acquiring and providing access to
Ukrainian and Polish imprints while
the University of North Carolina-
Chapel Hill (UNC-CH) develops a
comprehensive collection in Czech,
Slovak and Hungarian. In the case of
Russian-language materials, UNC-
CH is primarily responsible for
Russian history and literature
(particularly of the eighteenth and
nineteenth centuries), while Duke
collects comprehensively in Soviet
and contemporary Russian/Eurasian
history, economics, and linguistics.
Search TRLN, a unified, electronic
catalog facilitates browsing and
borrowing of holdings across all of
members of the Triangle Research
Library Network (TRLN).
Duke University Libraries contains one of the oldest and most extensive Slavic collections
of all the academic libraries in the Southeastern United States. The bulk of the collection
relates to the former Soviet Union and its successor states in Eurasia and Eastern Europe,
that is, to the territories that share either a common Slavic linguistic heritage or a political
history with the lands and cultures of Slavic Eurasia. The Library's consortial
responsibilities vis-à-vis other institutional members of the Triangle Research Library
Network (TRLN), and the interests and support of Duke’s faculty, have laid the basis for
several significant collections, particularly in Russian visual culture and Polish studies.
