The programme of the Conference will provide insight into various theoretical and practical issues concerning public libraries’ online services and viable models of connecting public libraries in the online environment, and it will address issues concerning the strengthening of cooperation between public libraries in joint projects and their linking through a system of portals and dynamic websites at the national level. Examples of good practice of libraries from other countries will also be presented and opportunities offered for establishing international cooperation.

Make sure you apply as early as possible, since participation fee until 15 September 2017 is HRK 300 (€40.50), while from 16 September 2017 on it will be raised to HRK 500 (€67.60). The fee covers participation in the conference programme, conference materials, welcome drink, refreshments during breaks and a conference dinner scheduled for 12 October 2017. LIS students, along with persons accompanying conference participants, may attend the Conference free of charge.

The Conference’s main organiser is the National and University Library in Zagreb, with the Croatian Library Association and Crikvenica Town Library acting as co-organisers and the National and University Library in Ljubljana (Narodna in univerzitetna knjižnica Ljubljana) and the Slovenian Library Association (Zveza bibliotekarskih društev Slovenije) acting as partners.
