The Society for Co-operation in Russian and Soviet
Studies (SCRSS) is a library and cultural centre, based in London,
that promotes knowledge of the culture, language and history of
Russia and the former Soviet Union. The Society is a registered
charity and celebrated its 90th anniversary in 2014.
The SCRSS Soviet Collections are a library and archive of the
arts, humanities and social sciences of the Soviet Union (1917-91).
They are unique in the UK. See Library &
Archive and Photo Library for
more information on the individual collections and research. We
also have a loan library for members' use.
We organise events such as seminars,
exhibitions, lectures and films, and promote Russian language
learning. We are actively involved with, and a founder member
of, the Soviet War Memorial in
London. We facilitate cultural contacts between the UK and Russia.
And we publish a journal, the SCRSS
Digest. Find out more about the benefits of SCRSS
