The Serbian collection is available as a browsable catalog.

  The library is based on Milorad's personal collection of books, representing his vision of Serbian culture, political thought, and European arts and letters. All of the books were published in the twentieth century, and the collection includes English as well as Serbian titles. A full spectrum of political opinion, from left to right, is represented.

It was Milorad Drachkovitch's dream to create a library that reflects the richness of Serbian and Eastern European culture. The Drachkovitch Library is interested receiving donations of books from other scholars to enhance the collection and in finding a permanent home for the library. We are also interested in presenting on-line materials that further Serbian arts and letters. If you would like to help, contact the head librarian of the Drachkovitch Library.
