Vol. 1, No. 3, Summer 1993, Covering the Former Soviet Union and East Central Europe
Readers with computer links to Internet have access to the Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty Daily Report,
a concise six-page compendium of late-breaking news from the former
Soviet Union and East Central Europe. The Daily Report is available by
sending a subscribe "rferl-1" command to LISTSERV@UBVM.CC. BUFFALO.EDU.
Only a small percentage of the Daily Report or the companion RFE/RL Research Report
deals directly with religion, but the pieces that do, written by
competent analysts, deserve a wide audience. Research libraries are the
best source for the Research Report due to the high subscription cost.
At no charge, the University of Illinois Library's Slavic Reference Service
tackles all manner of reference and bibliographic questions relating to
the humanities and social sciences, including religion, in the former
East Bloc. Place calls weekdays, 8:00 am-5:00 pm., Central Standard
