Bolgarske knjižnice od srednjega veka do danes

Through a brief summary of the history and structure of Bulgarian librarianship, the paper reveals how the library community has been gradually integrated into the international COBISS.Net network. Presented are the very beginnings of the librarianship and its subsequent expansion in the independent Bulgaria. The development after the Second World War, the time when the librarianship experienced both extreme forms of ideologisation and extensive institutionalisation, is described in more details. The changes after 1989 present the starting point for the development, which leading to a modern IT-supported Bulgarian librarianship has to deal with market conditions and is constrained by shortage of finance. Stated in this paper are three main academic institutions that provide education and training to librarians.
