Following a successful trial, we have now purchased the Stalin Digital Archive database from EastView.
The Stalin Digital Archive contains primary and secondary source material related to Joseph Stalin’s personal biography, his work in government, and his conduct of foreign affairs. A majority of these documents are scanned page images and corresponding bibliographic records in Russian created by the Russian State Archive of Social and Political History (RGASPI). The archive also contains full transcriptions of all of the volumes in Yale University Press’s acclaimed Annals of Communism (AOC) series.
Stalin Digital Archive can be accessed via the databases A-Z list, the History A-Z list or DiscoverEd.
We have trial access to Stalin Digital Archive until November 30th.
The Stalin Digital Archive contains a selection of documents which covers Stalin’s personal biography, his work in government, and his conduct of foreign affairs.
