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, providing a a treasure trove of books,
periodicals, photographs, recordings and other artefacts in Russian
and English from predominantly Soviet publishers. See Library
& Archive and Photo Library
for more information on the individual collections and research.
We organise events such as seminars,
exhibitions, lectures and film shows. We are actively involved
with, and a founder 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
