Catalogued and temporarily listed entries. Subjects were selected or formulated (for their possible suitability to CIG interests) from the chronological and subject arrangements of catalogued and shelved entries. Some cross-reference subjects are listed for the sake of the general picture but there is much material on hand under almost every heading; in addition, there is considerable material not yet catalogued. A. By chronological periods in Russian history. 1. Pre-1914. Virtually all subjects listed under paragraph B have many materials especially pertinent to the pre-1914 period. Cossacks Gosudarstvennaia Duma (1906-1907) Lena Gold Field Strike, 1912 Revolution of 1905 Russo-Japanese War 2. 1914-1917. Almost all general subjects which are pertinent to the 1914-1917 period are represented as well as many others peculiar to it. 3. 1917 Revolution. Causes Chronology Counter-revolutionary movements Intervention, allied Laws Maps Naval operations Persnnal narratives Pictorial works, posters Regimental histories Religion Sources of material 4.
