The preservation microfilming and cataloging of 5,200 brittle Slavic-language volumes published from 1850 to 1960 and held in the university's Russian and East European collections.

Columbia University Libraries proposes the two-year Slavic Culture and History Project, Phase IV, to preserve brittle, damaged Slavic-language materials. These materials are in the subject areas of Russian and East European history and literature published between 1850 and 1960. Columbia's holdings in this area are among the top five in the nation, and are in constant demand by researchers locally, nationally, and internationally. The project goal is to create archival-quality master microfilms with a potential lifespan of hundreds of years and to store them in conditions optimized for longevity. A total of 2,300 monograph volumes and 3,450 serial volumes comprising approximately 2,248 titles will be microfilmed.
