Patricia Grimsted's internationally acclaimed reference series provides the only comprehensive information available in any language about the development, holdings, and published reference aids for the rich archives and manuscript collections of the Soviet Union. In this, the first of a two-part third volume of the work, Grimsted focuses on Soviet Ukraine and Moldavia.
The first section of this book provides an annotated bibliography of basic reference works for those using archival materials. Subsequent sections offer directories of institutions now located in Kiev, Lviv, Kharkiv and other oblasts, and in Soviet Moldavia. Appendixes contain procedural information about Soviet archival organization and access restrictions and a table of geographic names in relevant languages.
