This most recent development supports the Libraries ongoing efforts to expand its Baltic Studies collection and commitment to preserve the region’s cultural heritage.

Washington DC—Earlier this week on Nov. 3, 2015 Eerik Marmei, the Estonian Ambassador to the United States, presented Michael Keller, Stanford University Librarian, with an Estonian e-resident’s digital identity card.  Keller has become one of the 6,000 people to join the tech-savvy country’s bold e-residency program. 

Under Michael Keller’s leadership and with donor support Stanford Libraries has established a growing Baltic Studies Program, which includes resources on Estonian, Latvian and Lithuanian history, literature and culture. In addition to books, periodicals and primary source holding Stanford Libraries actively collaborates with the Museum of Occupations in Tallinn, Estonia, as well as other institutions and organizations in order to enhance the Baltic studies by conducting collaborative projects, organizing seminars, conferences and other events to support collection development.
