Central Eurasian Studies

The Central Eurasian Studies Collections and related materials on the Indiana University-Bloomington (IUB) campus reflect the vast area extending from the Baltics and Hungary in the west to Mongolia in the east, and from southern Siberia in the north to Afghanistan and Tibet in the south (map showing geographical scope of library collections). The information collected on this website is intended to facilitate historical, linguistic, and political research concerning Central Eurasia and reflects the strengths of IUB's library collections, its teaching mission, and its faculty's interests. An effort has been made to identify relevant and reliable resources which are most useful to students and researchers.
