The Leeds Russian Archive catalogue contains records for the majority of the 500 or so archival collections, but some records are incomplete (lacking, for instance, item numbers) and a few are in draft form.

Material has been catalogued at the item level, which in some cases results in long descriptions dense with numerals (indicating, for instance, the number of documents, their dates and their item numbers).

Hard copy published catalogues

Some major collections are not represented in the catalogue database, but paper catalogues are available:
