Documentation Center (EDC), Moscow
The aim of this library is to provide information on women's human,
political, economic and reproductive rights to women, journalists, scholars,
students, researchers, teachers, government structures, non-governamental
organizations in Russia and abroad.
The documentation materials collected are divided into two sectors:
International documentation is processed in English with Russian translation;
while for the Russian literature we have applied the inverted procedure.
To process information the CDS/ISIS bibliographic programme has been adopted;
in order to facilitate exchange with other similar units at the national
and international levels, data are processed according to international
International - documents in English language;
Russian - documents in Russian language.
The shelves are divided according to eight Broad
Subject Headings which correspond to the main sectors that
have been selected as priviledged fields of interest within the topics
covered by women's rights studies:
At present there are nearly 250 books and items at International level
(English) and about 200 iterms in Russian. We also collect
