The Publishing Department was founded on July 1, 1961. It was in charge of publishing “The Chronicles of Belarusian Press” and the monthly bibliographic bulletin “New Books of Belarus”. Besides, the department published materials of scientific-practical library seminars, manuals and various bibliographies.
In 1964 functions of the Publishing Department were entrusted to Belarusian Book Chamber which was part of the Library.
In 1977 in view of establishment of the BSSR State Book Chamber the Publishing Department became an independent department of the Library.
The department’s activity had considerably extended: it publishes materials of international scientific library conferences and analytic surveys on cultural devilment of the country. In the 1990th the Publishing Department became the first Library’s department to apply automated industrial processes.
