To welcome new visitors and patrons, we summarize here some resources to explain to the uninitiated about the Hilandar Research Library (HRL) and the Resource Center for Medieval Slavic Studies (RCMSS).
Note that the photo of the HRL/RCMSS in the video (see below) shows one of the two rooms we inhabited before the renovation of the William Oxley Thompson Library.

Here’s where we are currently located, sharing space since 2009 with the Rare Books and Manuscripts Library and the Jerome Lawrence and Robert E. Lee Theatre Research Institute in the Jack and Jan Creighton Special Collections Reading Room (Thompson Library 105):

The Sixth International Hilandar Conference will be held at The Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio, July 19-21, 2013. The conference theme is Medieval Slavic Text and Image in the Cultures of Orthodoxy. We invite abstracts (not to exceed 500 words in length) of proposed presentations to be sent as Word.doc attachments to firstname.lastname@example.org prior to February 28, 2013.
For the latest information, see the 6th International Hilandar Conference page.
The conference will follow immediately after the conclusion of the 2013 Medieval Slavic Summer Institute (MSSI), which is scheduled for June 24-July 19. We look forward to introducing participants and guests to the recently renovated Thompson Library, the Jack and Jan Creighton Special Collections Reading Room, and the enhanced research, teaching, and preservation opportunities now at the disposal of the HRL.
