The Slavic librarians can also help you find appropriate drivers for Cyrillic, show you how to download them to your machine, help you conduct specialized searches in both English and Slavic languages, lead you to the best research sites, and show you how to avoid the worst "research" sites.
KU Slavic Librarians are located in Watson Library, on the 5th floor, Room 519.
