Guide to the Research Collections
Translations into English of the works of foreign philosophers, and critical material about them, are acquired regularly, in addition to texts in the original languages. Translations into other languages of material written originally in English are, however, seldom acquired. For example, few of the numerous translations of Bertrand Russell's writings have been acquired, although there is an extensive collection of his works in English, and critical material in all languages. An exception is made in the case of the Slavonic Division, which regularly acquires translations into Russian of material in the lesser-known Balto-Slavic languages.
