Margarita Nafpaktitis

Curator for Slavic and East European Collections

Margarita Nafpaktitis
(650) 206-3912

As the Slavic and East European collections librarian, the geographic scope of the collections I curate includes Russia, Eastern Europe, and Greece. I select materials for research and instruction published in and about these regions in new and old formats, in subject areas including literature and linguistics, cultural studies, history, and social sciences. I also consult and collaborate with students and faculty to help them find the materials that they need for their research and their teaching.
