Slavic Languages & East European Heritage
The Slavic Collection is a separate language collection of over 56,000 volumes of books, periodicals, newspapers, microforms and other resources. It is located on the third floor of the Elizabeth Dafoe Library. The Collection contains material on a wide range of subjects, mainly in humanities and social sciences. Most material is in Russian, Ukrainian and Polish, although all fourteen languages are represented.
The Slavic Collection supports courses and research in the Department of German & Slavic Studies, the Centre for Ukrainian Canadian Studies, Central and East European Studies, and other departments. In addition, the Collection complements the Archives of the Ukrainian Canadian Experience, which is housed in the University of Manitoba Archives & Special Collections. Materials are also used by multilingual members of the university community and general public.
