NSK Director General Dr Stričević elected member of CENL Executive Committee
The Director General of the National and University Library in Zagreb Dr Ivanka Stričević has been elected member of the Executive Committee of the Conference of European National Librarians (CENL). CENL, which brings together 49 national libraries in 45 European countries, aims to strengthen the cooperation between European national libraries and promote their activities and valuable cultural heritage preserved in their collections.
Apart from Dr Stričević, other CENL Executive Committee members elected for the upcoming three-year term are Frank Scholze (German National Library, Chair), Janne Andresoo (National Library of Estonia, Vice Chair), Karin Grönvall (National Library of Sweden, Treasurer), Vadim Valerievich Duda (Russian State Library), Laurence Engel (National Library of France), Sara Lammens (Royal Library of Belgium) and Hans Petschar (Austrian National Library). The new Executive Committee will commence its activities following this year’s CENL annual meeting, scheduled to take place in November 2021.
Dr Stričević’s membership of the Committee will certainly strengthen the position of the National and University Library in Zagreb among other European libraries and provide more opportunities for its cooperation with other CENL member libraries as well as with other libraries and institutions in Europe and worldwide.
