The Institute library (with over 300,000 vols.)—now officially a branch of the Library of the Russian Academy of Sciences (BAN, G–16)—grew out of the library collections of the Archeographic Commission founded in 1834. It is particularly strong in literature relating to Russian and world history and the ancillary historical disciplines. There are also the remains of the private libraries of a number of scholars including N.P. Likhachev, A.D. Liublinskaia, P.A. Mukhanov, A.A. Sivers, and S.A. Zhebelev. There are various reference card catalogues, with notations of all archeographic publications of the Soviet period and scholarly works of Institute associates.
