The National Library of Russia or Российская Националъиая Библиотека (RNB) in St. Petersburg is one of the world's major research libraries. Founded during the reign of Catherine the Great, in 1795, it is the nation's oldest public library. Since it has been a national depository institution since 1810, the RNB has the largest collection of published works in Russian, Ukrainian and Belorussian, with some 6,000,000 titles. Still located on the Nevskii Prospect, the library was known to readers before the 1917 Revolution as the Imperial Public Library and renamed during the Soviet era as the Saltikov-Shchedrin Library.
