Open Research Laboratory

SPRING 2021 VIRTUAL OPEN RESEARCH LABORATORY
ON RUSSIA, EASTERN EUROPE, AND EURASIA

January 25 – May 5, 2021

REEEC and the Slavic Reference Service (SRS) at the University of Illinois are happy to host our Virtual Open Research Laboratory (VORL) program. The VORL provides long-distance library support for graduate and post-graduate level research on Central and East Europe and the Independent States of the former Soviet Union. The VORL is funded in part by the US Department of State through its Title VIII Program, which aims to strengthen US expertise and policy-relevant knowledge about the REEES region. 

This year's VORL will take place January 21 - May 5, 2021. VORL Associates will have online access to the extensive holdings of the Slavic, East European, and Eurasian Collection at the International and Area Studies Library and are eligible for research assistance from the librarians of the Slavic Reference Service (SRS); these consultations help ensure that Associates not only locate all sources pertinent to their topic at Illinois, but those housed elsewhere, as well.

A list of our VORL Associates can be found here.

If you have any additional questions or concerns about the VORL, please contact the Russian, East European, and Eurasian Center (REEEC) at reeec-srl@illinois.edu
