Church Slavonic manuscripts and early printed books (UK and Oxford)

Oxford libraries have very strong collections of Church Slavonic manuscripts and early printed books. There are two standard bibliographies of Church Slavonic manuscript collections in the UK which can be used for locating these. Printed finding aids are still the best way of searching for Church Slavonic materials.
