Russia, Eastern Europe, and Eurasia: A Research Guide: Bibliographies of Bibliographies

About Bibliographies of Bibliographies

Bibliographies of bibliographies list bibliographies about a particular discipline.  They may include, in addition to separately published bibliographies, bibliographical articles (such as literature reviews) in journals and substantial bibliographies included in books about other topics.  They can be a great starting place for research.
