Dear colleagues, dear partners of the libraries

buten un binnen – wagen un winnen

We look forward to seeing you again, virtually and on site, in Bremen from June 16-18, 2021, for the 109th Bibliothekartag. The classic Hanseatic motto “buten un binnen – wagen un winnen” stands over this event as a challenge to the innovative power that libraries must also constantly face anew.

The Bibliothekartag had to be rescheduled several times: It will now take place on three days as a virtual congress, and on two days in a studio variant with streamed contributions also for a limited group of participants in Bremen on site (if, as we hope, the hygiene regulations allow it).

We are convinced that we have found a good solution for everyone who does not want to miss the Bibliothekartag and the exchange with colleagues.

We look forward to seeing you – on the net and on site!

*For non-Bremer, the translation of the motto is: “In the foreign and at home – Dare and win.”
