Subscription-based databases

Where not otherwise specified below, accessing the database requires a username and a password, which we can provide for you if you send a request to biblioteka@universitas.ru.


Bookmate, an ebook reading application with a multilingual library.
The resource compiles 850,000 books in English, Russian, and 10 other languages.
To access the resource’s books, you need to connect to Wi-Fi on the MSSES territory and sign up in the web version of the app on a computer in any convenient way (via e-mail, Facebook page, etc.). After that, the free subscription will activate in the mobile app as well. You can download books only when connected to our network, but after you add them to your ‘bookshelf’ in the app, you’ll be able to read them offline as well.

Coursera for Campus

The School’s students get access to over 5,000 courses from the world’s leading universities and organisations, such as the University of London, Yale, California Institute of the Arts, and Hong Kong University of Science and Technology among others.

If you’d like to get access to the platform, send your request to biblioteka@universitas.ru. State your full name and e-mail that needs to be registered in the programme.


Password is not required when logging in from the School’s computers.
