Serbia and the Serbian Collections in the Library of Congress

Openly Available Digital Resources

In any guide to the Serbian collections of the Library of Congress it is important to highlight digital resources. This section of the guide provides only a brief selection of freely available Serbian sites that are more useful for reference and discovery, than deep dives into specific subjects. It is by no means an attempt to provide a comprehensive list of what can be found on the Internet. Subscription content from the Library of Congress is described on the page Onsite Only Electronic Resources.

The page is organized into the following sections:

  • Online Catalogs from Serbian Libraries
  • Digital Collections from Serbia
  • Serbian Language Internet News Sites
  • English Language Sites on Serbia

Online catalogs from Serbian Libraries

The three online catalogs described below have been the most useful in general reference work about Serbia and in the preparation of various online guides about Serbian publications in the Library of Congress collections.

Digital Collections from Serbia

The sites described in this section are freely available digital collections of Serbian materials. These collections encompass mostly digitized materials from libraries, but also some born-digital content. They span an array of subjects and formats from history and literature to architecture and music scores.

Serbian Language Internet News Sites

Serbs have a plethora of choices for general online news. Below are just a few sites from larger media companies, but more sites can be found by searching in a browser for the words "vesti iz Srbije" or "najnovije vesti."

English Language Sites on Serbia

Information about Serbia can be found on English-language sites from many realms such as news portals, newspapers, international organizations, and educational and cultural heritage institutions. Listed below is a small selection of such sites, for comprehensive coverage is impossible. In addition, other guides on Serbia created by the staff of the Library of Congress are described on the Introduction page of this guide.
