library open for the public. It covers the field of Slavonic
studies. It systematically complements, analyses,
preserves and provides a public access to a collection
of world Slavistic literature, especially from the fields
of history, philology, and politology, together

The Library provides library and information services covering the political,
economic, and cultural life of Slavonic nations, their interrelations
and their relations to other nations in the past and
present. It processes and edits specialized bibliographies
and publications in its field of interest.
