Main Organizers

University Library in Bratislava (ULIB) is the oldest and largest scientific library in Slovakia, which was founded in 1919 and until 1954 served as a national library. It was amongst the first cultural and educational institutions that were founded in the new Czechoslovak Republic on the territory of Slovakia in support of the emerging higher education and science. Despite its original intention to become a university library of the oldest Slovak university, it has never become an integral part of it, even though it has so far enjoyed great interest among students and the academic community. The University Library in Bratislava retained its original name, which also describes the universal nature of its library collections. At present it is a modern scientific library serving the whole country. In the jubilee year 2019, the University Library in Bratislava commemorates its 100th anniversary.
