IT holds more than 500,000volumes that range from 14th century illuminated manuscripts, to the latest serials in Slavic and Baltic vernacular languages, as well 20,000 microfilms and microfiche titles. The Division has continuously acquired valuable and unique materials from authorized dealers and donors in the United States and abroad.
