Harvard Ukrainian Research Institute

The Harvard Ukrainian Research Institute (HURI) was founded in 1973, and is an important venue for graduate and undergraduate students, fellows, and researchers, whose focus of study is the Ukrainian language, literature, history, economics, political studies, and other disciplines.

The Institute contains a library, and along with Harvard's own Ukrainian collection, is one of the largest in North America devoted to Ukrainica. In addition to supporting research and scholarly activities, HURI's publication office, publishes the important journal, Harvard Ukrainian Studies Journal, one which the University of Manitoba Libraries subscribes to (available electronically, as well as older issued shelved on the 3rd floor of the Elizabeth Dafoe Library, call # 947.7 H261 Uk St). HURI annually publishes important titles related to Ukrainian Studies by important scholars in this field.
