Government Libraries in Greece: Present State

Library on Gender and Equality of the General Secretariat for Gender Equality, Ministry of Interior of Greece

Our session at the IFLA Annual Congress will include a presentation that covers the opportunities and contraints for government libraries in Greece. According to the authors Monopoli & Mastora:

The sector of government libraries in Greece is one not adequately researched. Although the Hellenic Statistical Authority of the Ministry of Finance collects statistical data from all public libraries every two years, this data is not sufficiently promoted and exploited to the benefit of the particular community. The primary aim of this research is to contribute to the collaboration of government libraries in Greece. Specifically, this paper is focused on describing the following two methods of collaboration: a) the shared cataloguing and b) the access to co-operative collections
through joint agreements.

The session 193 organised by the Government Libraries IFLA Section will take place on August 16 in Helsinki, Finland as part of the IFLA World Library and Information Congress.
