Working in GARF - 2

It has been years since I last worked in GARF-2 on Berezhkovskaia. I will be working there for a few weeks in May. Do I have to go to Pirogovskaia to register first or can registration be taken care of at Berezhkovskaia?

Any other tips to pass along - lunch places, for example - would be most appreciated.

Russian and East European Travel Literature by Pilgrims to the Holy Land, Arabic-speaking Regions and Constantinople

Dear colleagues,

I am looking for travel literature written by Russians and people from the lands included in the Russian Empire from 900 to 1917, travelling to Constantinople, Arabic-speaking Middle East, and the Holy Land.

I'd love to get any hint possible.

Thank you!

Summer Language Workshop at Indiana University (June 8-July 31, 2015)

The Indiana University Summer Language Workshop (June 8 - July 31, 2015) is still accepting applications for intensive study of first through sixth year Russian on the Bloomington campus. (First year Russian begins June 1.)

The program features 20+ contact hours weekly; twice-weekly language tables; films; food tastings; student-run graduate research groups and other culturally rich extracurricular programming.   

What are you working on?

Dear colleagues,

I think that this network provides us with good opportunities to collaborate with each other, which is why I am posting this discussion.

I am curious as for your current research projects: what are your research questions? What are your sources?

Having an archivable thread of answers might help future graduate students and researchers with research ideas and collaboration opportunities.
