Balkan Libraries Union (BLU) was founded on 29 July 2009 with the participation of 10 institutions from 6 Balkan countries. The general aim of BLU is to assist any type of libraries in Balkan to become a functional network across national boundaries in order to ensure the preservation of the Balkan cultural heritage, to improve access to collections in Balkan libraries and to provide more efficient library information services in Balkan. We would like to invite our colleagues who carry on their activities in Balkan countries to devise projects under the same umbrella of this union in order to reach our foundation aims.
