Agricultural Library in Moscow - Eight decades ago, in July of 1930, a Branch Reference Library affiliated to the USSR Agricultural Academy was set up to support the research and practical activities. Later on, the Reference collection grew into the Central Scientific Agricultural Library (CSAL) which is currently celebrating the 80th anniversary. During its lifetime, alongside with the national events the CSAL has faced the periods of great success and great difficulties, now thanks to the management and the staff it remains to be the federal centre of information and training.

Currently, the library has over 3 million accessioned volumes on agriculture and related subjects such as forestry, environmental protection, food industry and resources. The bibliographic rarities date back to the 18th century and the pre-revolutionary magazines for a period of over a hundred years are kept here.
