Vloga kulturnega konteksta pri nastajanju knjižničnih informacijskih sistemov v mreži COBISS.Net
Preserving cultural identity is equally important as preserving biodiversity. No country in the world can be regarded as culturally homogenous. Libraries are of key importance for coexistence in a multicultural environment and for the development of multicultural competence. COBISS operates in a region with strong multicultural characteristics and plays an active role in establishing multicultural dialogue. On the basis of the principle of reciprocity, tolerance and solidarity it takes into consideration the historical development of entities, equality of languages and scripts and the collective vision of the future. It also promotes the idea of consolidation of information, spread decades ago by UNESCO. The COBISS.Net network provides efﬁcient support to bibliographic information exchange and represents infrastructure for intercultural dialogue.
