The Team and the Cabinet were headed by the eminent Indologist and linguist V.M.Beskrovny.

This resulted in the ‘Department of South and South Eastern Asian Studies’, with G.A. Zograf as its head. After his death in 1993, Y.V.Vassilkov was appointed head of the Department, a post he occupied until 2005. The Department has been run by M.I.Vorobyova-Desyatovskaya since 2005. More...

The Library was founded in 1818 as the basis of the Asiatic Museum (AM). It included the books transferred from the Kunstkamera and the Library of the Academy of Sciences (all in all more than 400 volumes) on history, philosophy, geography, religion, the languages of the countries of the East and related humanitarian disciplines.

Later the Library of the AM became the largest storehouse of the academic literature on all aspects of Oriental studies. Originally the Library was replenished due to private donations, gifts of foreign and Russian scholars, and purchases of various collections of relevant books. There was also a practice of exchange of the books with foreign establishments and scholars. More...
