Other news

Since September 14, the exhibition "Librarianship: History and Modernity" dedicated to the Library Day (September 15) has been running in the ring gallery of the 2nd floor.

Since ancient times, libraries have been considered the temples of the intellectual and spiritual development of mankind, repositories of unique knowledge. Huge funds were spent on their construction and decoration – the works of the best artists, carvers and sculptors were used.

Modern libraries are both treasures of handwritten and book monuments, and social institutions that unite people of different communities and ages in an effort to acquire high-quality knowledge. These are also cultural centers that help to spend your free time with taste, to touch artistic, literary and musical creativity.

The National Library of Belarus has prepared a thematic exhibition "Librarianship: History and Modernity" for its professional holiday. The exposition includes about 60 books and magazines published in Belarus and abroad.

Scientific and educational publications on the history of libraries, library legislation, management, sociological and scientific research, innovations in library and bibliographic services for readers, interlibrary interaction are among them. Some of the works are dedicated to famous people in the field of librarianship.

A number of articles tell about the history of the largest libraries of Belarus and Russia, analyze the activities of national libraries of the CIS countries. You can also learn about the history of the most famous libraries in the world in the French editions of “The most beautiful libraries of the world".

The presented publicity covers such issues as the role of the library in the information society, the preservation of traditions and the development of new technologies, innovations and project activities in libraries. Practical manuals of recent years are of great interest.: "Librarian's creative notebook“, ”Interactive and multimedia technologies for promoting reading“, ”Project management in Library and information activities“, ”The Library where it is interesting","Casebook of the best library projects of the beginning of the millennium", etc”

The exhibition will be of interest to librarians, teachers, museum workers and other workers in the field of culture and education who are interested in the state and prospects of development of libraries as social institutions for the development and education of citizens, as well as readers of all ages.
