16th Conference of the Serbian Library Association

Date: 12 December 2019 to 13 December 2019
Location: Belgrade, Serbia

Small Libraries in Big Dialogue for Changes

The 16th conference of the Serbian Library Association tends to open a new space for dialogue on topics that primarily deal with small or smaller libraries, so as to call attention of the professional public to this numerous and diverse segment of library and information science. By small libraries we imply a wide range of institutions and organizations within library and information science that have not been in the spotlight of the SLA conferences so far: libraries with only one employee, special libraries and library and information centers, academic libraries and those belonging to the scientific research institutions, public libraries (smaller city and municipal libraries), school libraries etc. In this case the notion of a small library is in no way limited to the size of the book holdings, number of employees or library users, but it refers to putting a large number of organizations that offer library and information services and protect cultural or scientific heritage, into a common context of dialogue. For that reason the Serbian Library Association invites all interested professionals, librarians, researchers, students to participate in the conference and contribute to better understanding of library management of such libraries and their position, as well as to start the dialogue that would enable the fulfillment of preconditions for making better changes both through formal activities undertaken by institutions or through informal ways such as networking or cooperation among individuals.
