The EUSP Research Library is a comprehesive collection of publications in social sciences and humanities, featuring ca. 50,000 books and periodicals and providing access to online resources. It is listed among the best collections of such kind in Russia, having the Arctic social sciences as one of its focal areas.

Education at the EUSPB is based on a modern academic and methodological infrastructure, above all a unique library, a model of college libraries of a modern level.

The library’s holdings include around 50,000 books and periodicals; the Library offers open access to stacks. The EUSP Library holdings include also rich electronic resources, publications in audio- and video-format, and optical disks.

Readers enjoy full-text databases of periodicals and books in Russian and foreign languages (electronic library): EBSCO, JSTOR, Science Direct, World Bank, ACLS History E-Book Project, Cambridge University Press, Oxford University Press, and many others.

From its first day, the EUSP Library became one of Russia’s best specialized libraries. Over the years, the EUSP faculty and students contributed vastly to collecting the principal recent publications from all over the world in the disciplines taught at the University.

The training seminars and exhibitions organized by the EUSP Library for librariens of St. Petersburg and other Russian cities are aimed at presenting to the librarians' community new publications from leading publishing houses in North America and Europe, as well as with new electronic resources.
