The next installment of Meet the National Libraries is on April 22nd at 10:00 am US Central Time / 4:00 pm Central European Time. We are deeply honored to feature the National Library of the Czech Republic (see below for webinar program). This event will be recorded.
The Slavic Reference Service, working in collaboration with the National Libraries Section, is introducing a new webinar series, Meet the National Libraries. The extraordinary contributions of national libraries play an important role in maintaining the vast network of libraries and scholarly communities around the world. Numerous search tools, digital collections, national bibliographies, and portals have been introduced. By featuring national libraries, we hope to make them more accessible. Each iteration of this series will feature a national library. We would be glad to feature your library. Please contact us at
