Berlin is always worth the trip – and since the 100th Bibliothekartag in 2011, who doesn’t have a suitcase in Berlin? The capital city is booming, even if the new Berlin airport is still not open and Hertha BSC has missed the Champions League again. But the Berlin trains still lead you through our rich library landscape which inspires each one of us. In no other German city are you welcomed so warmly by so many librarians.

Surely no one wants to miss Bibliothekartag 2018; you would miss a lot. Not only colleagues, but also guidance and accompaniment through the jungle of our many libraries and, of course, a highly attractive program which will assure that you do not soon forget the 107th Bibliothekartag in Berlin. We are working on the Programme intensively. We can’t tell you too much about it just yet, but we can assure you that soon you will find more information on these pages. Of course, we will gladly keep you up to date.

We cordially invite you to the Bibliothekartag 2018 in Berlin and look forward to seeing you again in large numbers in the Berlin Estrel.
What is the motto of the Bibliothekartag 2018? “Open & connected” – it cannot be more appropriate for all of us.
