Corpus of Old Slavonic Texts.

I must thank my kind colleague June Pachuta Farris who is a bibliographer for Slavic, East European and Eurasian Studies at U Chicago for sharing these useful links about Old Slavonic Texts. June was along with many kind American Slavic Studies librarians was welcoming when I came by an accident to the Slavic Librarianship in 2006. My journey could have been incomplete if not for the generosity of many North American colleagues who helped me through the complicated waters of Slavic Studies collection development.

I wanted to share these links with the readers of my blog.
