The Homeland War Book Collection was established by the Decision of the Professional Committee of the National and University Library in Zagreb on 9 December 2008. The significance of the Homeland War, a period strongly marking the history of the Croatian people, is reflected in the number and diversity of national and foreign publications in this field. The Homeland War in these publications is approached in the context of different scientific fields – history, political science, military science, legal considerations and other – and from different points of view, especially if we take into account the foreign publications from Europe and the world. Therefore, the purpose of the Collection is to assemble all relevant materials on the Homeland War in a single place and thus offer the most detailed insight possible into this complex and multidisciplinary subject area. A collection built on such principles gives a comprehensive overview on all the research in this field conducted so far and serves as a valuable resource for new research into the Homeland War. The activities of the Collection include presentations of new publications on the Homeland War, temporary thematic book exhibitions and an exhibition continuously displaying new titles added to the Collection. The Collection currently holds approximately 3,700 titles and 3,800 units (February 2018).
