Pushkin Collection of the Wisconsin Center for Pushkin Studies

The Pushkin Collection library presently contains nearly 8000 individually catalogued journal articles, monographs and collections of articles about Pushkin, and editions and book-form translations. The collection, accumulated over more than forty years by Emeritus Professor J. Thomas Shaw to assist in his own and his students' research, is outstanding for the comprehensiveness of its holdings of periodical publications on Pushkin, and of individual articles published in books of scholarly journals. Various items in the collection -- books and microfilms (which have been photocopied for reading in regular printed form) -- have been received from the Pushkin Group at Pushkin House, St. Petersburg, Russia. While new materials may be being acquired through use of listings in scholarly bibliographical publications, such as the MLA International Bibliography, and through ongoing cooperation with Pushkin House; and systematic efforts are made to discover and fill hiatuses of older materials, this online database has not been updated in several years as of 2016. Catalogued items include not only individual books and articles from journals, but also the contents of important Russian serial publications on Pushkin, and also single-author and multi-author collections on Pushkin. The collection also contains the prime research editions of Pushkin's works, among others, and various translations in book form. Pushkin aids (e.g. Slovar' jazyka Pushkina, Pushkin: A Dictionary of Rhymes, Putevoditel' po Pushkinu) are also available. The Pushkin Collection is of works directly by or on Pushkin, not for accumulation of Pushkiniana as such, but for the purpose of making immediately available the publications directly needed for research on Pushkin's works (with somewhat lesser interest in Pushkin the person).
