The Library Science Room provides access to one of the largest specialized collections in Russia. It contains almost 140 thousand volumes of printed books and journals dated from the 19th century onwards. These are Russian and Western European publications on the theory and history of library science, bibliography, bibliology and scientific information. Among them are the nineteenth century rare editions that promote research into the history of domestic and foreign libraries.
