Reading Room Practices, General Hints and Tips

You need to go into the building by the main entrance and present otnosheniya to the zamdirektor of Pushkinskii dom before going outside and round the building into the courtyard, where the archive is housed in a newly redecorated annexe. Conditions in the reading room are excellent, though as usual, space is rather limited. Computer use is permitted; there is no problem about reserving material, and if the archivist is not there, you can collect the files yourself.
