"Visual Perspectives and Narratives" comprises the third module, and features a rich variety of primary source material from the holdings of Imperial War Museums. Through both visual and documentary resources, this collection showcases the international dimensions of the conflict, the British home front and the role of women in the war.

  • 2. 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).

  • 10. RAMBI Index of Articles on Jewish Studies

    RAMBI is selective bibliography of articles in the various fields of Jewish studies and in the study of Israel. Material listed is compiled from thousands of periodicals and from collections of articles monographs - in Hebrew, Yiddish, and European languages- mainly from the holdings of the Jewish National and University Library, a world center for research on the Jewish people and Israel. The main criterion for inclusion in the bibliography is that the article be based on scientific research, or contain important information for such research. Since the inception of this bibliographic project in 1966, the editorial board has striven to include in it all of the important articles published throughout the world in the field of Judaica. Therefore, it includes offprints of articles from journals or collections not on order to the Library. Rambi also lists articles from secondary sources.
