This guide provides context to the culture and history of Ukraine and Russia, Ukrainian and Russian news sources, Russian-Ukraine conflict maps, and Ukrainian libraries and cultural heritage. Resources for the critical review of news and media sources provide suggestions for the verification of information.

This guide was created in March 2022 by Tara Anthony, Tara Murray Grove, Jeff Knapp, and Emily Reed. In creating this guide, we have drawn on the resources and design of guides created by other libraries. Below are links to those guides that we have used or been inspired by for one or more portions of this guide. We encourage you to check out their guides for even more resources. (Note: some resources in these guides may require institutional affiliation for access.)
