Guide to Resources on the Balkans

Books which deal with the countries of the Balkan Peninsula as a group are brought together in the General Balkan collection, located on the Lower Ground Floor of the Library. This section covers the history, politics and economic conditions of the area. There are also a number of descriptive works, travel accounts and memoirs of visitors to the region dating from the 19th and early 20th centuries.

Books in this section have the shelf mark Gen.Balk.

In addition there are separate classes for each individual country - books on Albania, Bulgaria, Romania, Yugoslavia and successor states, as well as our small collections on Greece and Turkey are also all to be found on the Lower Ground Floor.

Bibliographical records for all of the Turkish collection are to be found in the Explore, UCL library online catalogue.
