Directory of Lithuanian Resources at Selected Libraries, Archives, and Museums

This directory provides links to Lithuanian materials at 82 libraries, archives, and museums in the United States and Lithuania. If an organization has a Lithuanian name, the Lithuanian name is used, followed by the name in English. Other sources are listed by their English names. Some information is missing. In some cases, information was not obtained; in other cases, the field was omitted when it was clear or reported that virtually all holdings were in English. Holdings in Lithuanian are reported only for sources having substantial portions of holdings in Lithuanian. This annotated bibliography was prepared by Dr. Lee Burchinal, Executive Director, Sudan-American Foundation for Education, Inc.
