Our search engine includes 3 subject fields in our records: MIPP topic, category, and Library of Congress (LoC) Classification
• MIPP topic is a broader classification of general subjects: all history, literature, art, etc.
• The category includes a wide range of subjects and types of publications, such as Jewish Studies, Gender, Reference Books, etc.
• Library of Congress Classification consists of the main classes and subclasses represented in the American Bibliography of Slavic and East European Studies (ABSEES). These are based on the Library of Congress Subject Headings.
The multiple topics allow you to fine-tune your search and attain exact results.
As our database contains books in different languages, sometimes you may need to filter the search results according to your priority of language. Our language classification is very simple: you may choose between Russian, English and other Languages.
Often books primarily written in one language contain contents, summary or articles in other languages. It is always noted in books description. You may use checkbox "Do not show multilanguage titles" at our search pages to prevent searching through books that contain materials in several languages
Our Book Search engine
supports ascending(default)/descending sorting by the following fields:
• Acquisition date
When you enter the keyword into the Author field, our search engine will look through the Author fields in the national language and in the transcription variant and then display the results. Searching through the Title field includes working with National Language title and subtitle, with title and subtitle Translation, and with transcription fields.
ISBN/ISSN search ignores dashes "-" and blank spaces " ". E.g. you may input the number as with dashes "966-603-371-2" so omitting them "9666033712", in ether cases you will find the book.
You may also use a Keyword search facility, that is: enter a word or a phrase you are absolutely sure to meet in the description of the necessary book. Our search engine will look through all the fields and display the results according to your choice of priority. We also perform searches through Region, multiple Topics, ISBN, Year of publishing, Price range, and Call Number (our database code).
Use the checkbox "do not show multilanguage titles" if you want to view books only in the language you have selected. Let us suppose, you are looking for books in Russian on Finno-Ugric Studies. Normally the list of books will include books in multiple languages (for example In English, Estonian and Russian or with summary in Russian etc.). If you want the book to be merely in Russian, you should mark this checkbox and choose Russian in the language option.
"Sales books" checkbox allows narrowing the search by including the items sold at half price only in the results. You may find them quite useful.
Please, do not hesitate to order the book, which is considered to be rare or out of print. Our regional specialists will try to locate it and we will let you know if the item is available. We do not charge for the search. Although we can not guarantee the positive result, our fulfilment rate for such orders is very high.
