Search this Site

To search this site, add your keywords to the words listed below. (This will search the U of A library's server, but limit to those pages with "Slavic Information Literacy" in them, i.e. all the Slavic Information Literacy pages. This method is imperfect, but may be helpful for some until I can get a more robust search system in place).



      Many library colleagues & Slavic scholars have helped in supplying the content for this site. I have tried to give credit where due. Any inaccuracies or mistakes are mine alone. The site is intended to be a collaborative effort. Suggestions concerning the content, design, navigability, or philosophy of the site are always welcome (and new content even more so). If you have suggestions, content or links you would like to contribute, please contact me at the email below (or click on the link and fill in a web form).
