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 No 1104012 and celebrated its 90th anniversary in 2014. You can donate online to support our work and collections.

The SCRSS Soviet Collections are a library and archive of the arts, humanities and social sciences of the Soviet Union (1917-91). 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 membership.

Please note: with the exception of our scheduled events, visitors to the SCRSS centre must make a prior appointment.
