Yesterday, the Slavic Reference Service was fortunate enough to host Effim Melamed for a lecture on archives in Ukraine. Melamed is an expert on the subject and has been conducting research in Ukrainian archives for over thirty years. His presentation covered many of challenges and opportunities researchers from both Ukraine and abroad may encounter when visiting archives. He also spoke about many of the interesting archival situations he has encountered throughout his career.
Below we have included a short bibliography of sources for further information about conducting archival research in Ukraine as well as recording of Melamed's lecture.
