The National Library of Russia
Our library

Dear Colleagues!
We would like to invite you to participate in the 6th All-Russian scientific and practical conference entitled "Library Collections in the Digital Era: traditional and electronic resources, acquisition and use", which will be held on March 28 - April 2, 2016, at the National Library of Russia, St. Petersburg.

Read about new additions to our website.

We are pleased to announce the online exhibition Ethiopian Manuscripts in the National Library of Russia that demonstrates items kept in our library.

The National Library of Russia also presents the exhibition Poem «The Lusiads» of Luís de Camões in Mikhail Travchetov's Translation. It tells of the epic poem of Luis de Camoes (1524 – 1579) and links the great Portuguese poet whose life is worthy of description in an action-adventure novel, with a Russian writer – a translator whose literary heritage has tragic fate.
