Database

 
The LIBER AG has great pleasure to announce its new database that documents new library buildings throughout Europe and will inlcude future documentations. Started in early in 2011, it contains the material from the documentations of 2012 & 2014; we hope to be able to integrate our earlier documentations, too. The database ist hosted by the National Technical Library of the Czech Republic; access is here.
