In the structure of the Library of the Academy of Sciences (estab. 1714), the Manuscript Department was created in 1899. In the the 20th century, especially after 1917, the fonds of the Manuscript Department steadily increased thanks to active collecting. Hard times fell on the Manuscript Department during WWII. During the period of the blockade of Leningrad, nearly all of the staff of the Department, leading specialists in the field of history and philology, died. On April 25, 1944 work was begun to reconstitute the fonds by the only remaining survivor of the Department's staff, M.N. Murzanova. In the spring of 1945, the Manuscript Department accepted its first researchers. In 1952 the Department was merged with Rare Books. The Department is now also a leading center for scientific research. The article provides a bibliography of publications issued by and associated with the Department of Manuscripts and Rare Books. Polata 13: 2.
