We’re looking forward to welcoming you to the Joint Meeting of ABLD, APBSLG, CLADEA, and EBSLG in Vienna on May 11-14, 2020.
Our motto will be “Classic meets Modern: Libraries facing the challenges of the 21st century,” and we will be discussing future prospects for libraries and exchanging ideas with you for upcoming developments in managing business libraries all around the world. Preserving and enhancing the traditional, classic media and library functions and implementing new, modern, future-oriented ones will be demanding challenges in the new decade. The motto also reflects our meeting place, Vienna. Vienna is a city with 2000 years of history and architecture from a variety of eras, from baroque, Jugendstil, and the gothic St. Stephens Cathedral, all the way up to modern architecture like WU’s Library and Learning Center by Zaha Hadid, opened in 2013.
