Ben’s Index (saddly, no longer available)

Developed in 2004-2005 by Benjamin Zajicek , then a graduate student at the University of Chicago, Ben’s Index of Russian History Resources is a straightforward, well organized and uncluttered index of resources for the Russian historian. Though the site has not been maintained and is now somewhat dated, it still contains many valuable links.

There are a number of sections for history graduate students, which cover the profession in general,  funding, useful software, filing taxes, ethics, reading, writing, style & citation, oral history and online resources and forums.  Topics specifically for Russianists include archives, libraries, & catalogs, online dictionaries & encyclopedias, guides to the soviet archives, laws & regulations of the Russia, bibliographies, academic journals, professional organizations, museums, exhibits and memorials as well as a list of many prominent people in the field.
