The books listed in this bibliography were traditionally housed in the Slavic Reference Section of Watson Library. These represent a number of the "classic" philology reference works for Slavic languages, and included bibliographies, general, and etymological dictionaries, and a selection of works on comparative grammar.

Recently many of these books listed here have been moved to the general stacks and can now be checked out.

To find the current location of any item please click on the link "Catalog Record" and the location will appear at the bottom on the record.

A number of the older works (pre-1924) now have freely accessible online version. In those cases the link is provided in the indivisual tabs, as well as under the tab "Online editions."
