How to Register

Bring an official letter from your university. If you have a local contact at a university in Saratov, it's a good idea to have them call ahead.

How to Order Material

You can order up to 10 files in the reading room. There is usually a two-day wait, but you can stack orders in a queue

Reading Room Practices, General Hints and Tips

No computers are allowed. You should get there early, as the reading room can sometimes fill up. However, if you have a local contact in the archive or in the city, you can negotiate with the archive director to let you carry a computer into another, smaller reading room. There are plenty of places to eat on the main streets by the archive.
