Library

The HSE has a large contemporary university library with academic works on Economics and Management, Social and Political Sciences. It comprises over 600,000 items, most of which are recent works by Russian and foreign scholars. The Library’s five branches in different parts of Moscow are open and accessible to international students; a special ILS is used to support the acquisition and circulation of books, and RFID tags have been introduced for book identification.

The central HSE Library is located in the main building  on Myasnitskaya Ul. 20.
