About meThe Scotland-Russia Forum and its library have now moved. The new address is:

Summerhall (old Dick Vet building)
1 Summerhall
Edinburgh EH9 1PL
Tel. 0131 560 1486

You can return books to the above address. If we are out please leave them (in a bag/wrapped up and addressed to us) at the Summerhall reception desk in the entrance hall. The library is not yet shelved but we hope it will be open by August. Phone 0131 560 1486 with any queries, or email

Access to the library is open to all. Full members of the Scotland-Russia Forum can borrow books for free. Non-members can register as borrowers upon payment of a £10 annual fee.

About my libraryThe Library has around 2,000 volumes for loan, although a proportion of these are currently in store, because of space constraints. The collection includes DVDs, CDs, language learning materials and reference books. The biggest section is devoted to Russian literature, and includes poetry, short stories, novels and plays, mainly in the original Russian although there are some English translations too, works by English and Scots authors (for example Robert Burns, Walter Scott and Ian Banks) translated into Russian. Other sections cover history and politics, biography, travel and geography, art and architecture. We receive a small number of journals regularly: RBCC Bulletin, Русская Мысль, Russian Life, East-West Review, Англия, Rusistika, Languages Today (published by ALL), Коммерсант

In May 2011 the library benefited from the generous donation of a large collection of books which had belonged to the late Kupava Birkett. This has enhanced our holdings, especially in early nineteenth century and mid-twentieth century literature, and of biographies of literary figures. As a result of this donation we now have a collection of dictionaries available for consultation on a wide range of subjects.

Most of the collection is available for loan, but dictionaries, journals and some other works are only available for reference in the Institute. Reference access is free.
