RUDN was the first university which gave such access to library resources.

Presidential Library is one of the 3 national libraries in Russia, the hallmark of which is the availability of all digital publications, which gives it the right to be called a national electronic archive. "We believe in complex nature of knowledge. The digital form of Presidential Library helps to combine text electronic copies, video and audio from archives, museums, media, and universities collections ", - emphasized Alexander Vershinin, director general of the Presidential Library. The collection contains books, historical materials and scientific texts (including abstracts and monographs), periodicals, multimedia and much more.
