Libraries at the Heart of the Dialogue of Cultures and Religions  

Screen shot 2014-08-13 at 1.17.05 PM


The IFLA Religious Libraries in Dialogue Special Interest Group (RELINDIAL) is dedicated to libraries serving as places of dialogue between cultures through a better knowledge of religions. This book shows the contribution of libraries to the dialogue between cultures, a dialogue which is always closely linked to the dialogue between religions. With the urgent need for dialogue on a worldwide scale, libraries have a significant role to play. And they are meeting this challenge.

Congratulations to Odile Dupont, Editor,  for all her work!
