Electronic library of historical documents of the Russian Historical Society

Kirill Fesenko

The goal of the project is to create an open access electronic library of historical documents, in which researchers will be able to find all historical documents published in Russia since 1991. In addition to the archival documents the creators of the project will gradually add comments and notes from the published document collections to the resource.

Irina Novichenko, PhD History, Head of the Special Collections Department, GPIB of Russia,


In recent years, many new materials on the political history of Russia were added to the collection of the Electronic Library of the State Public Historical Library. Among them are materials that cover new and in-demand subjects, such as the revolutionary movement in Russia, the history of the world communist movement and rare publications by the authors who were repressed during the years of the Great Terror.
