It also includes the archives of many of the major Russian authors such as Dostoevsky and Pushkin. 

UNESCO's contribution covered the preparation and publication of the catalogue of these manuscripts and the production of a CD-ROM consisting of the catalogue and sample pages from most of the manuscripts.
