The Society for Co-operation in Russian and Soviet Studies (SCRSS) is a library and cultural centre, based in London, which promotes knowledge of the culture, language and history of Russia and the former Soviet Union. Our members include students, teachers, researchers, designers, university departments and many others with an interest in Russia. Our library, archive and photographic collections are unique in the UK. We organise seminars, exhibitions, lectures and film shows, and facilitate cultural contacts between individuals and organisations in Russia and the UK. The Society is a registered charity.
