The Slavic Reference Service at the University of Illinois has just announced the publication of a new digital collection, “Russian Books of the 18th Century,” which is now freely available on Internet Archive: https://archive.org/details/reees-18th-c-books

From the announcement:

“This collection is an ongoing project to make all of the books listed in Svodnyi katalog russkoi knigi grazhdanskoi pechati XVIII veka digitally available. It is designed to be used in tandem with the catalog: each item is cross-referenced with its entry number and transliterated title for easy access. We hope this will be a more convenient option for finding 18th-century Russian books than its microform predecessor. There are currently over 400 items uploaded, with our eventual goal being to have the full contents of the catalog online. Digitized books have been curated from the Russian National Electronic Library (RusNEB).”
