• Library Buildings in Europe

  • The Library Buildings in Europe website records  examples of good and interesting library buildings throughout Europe; it is a benchmarking tool for all those involved in new or refurbished library building projects including librarians, architects or any other professionals.

    The aim is to inspire and support anyone working on a library building project – a new building, an extension, a renovation, or a reworking of interior spaces. The wide variety of case studies will enable those involved in such projects to pick up on new trends, to share knowledge and experience, and to learn from, and make contact with, each other.

    Members of the LIBER Architecture Group (LIBER LAG) are delighted to offer this project as a tool to stimulate innovative ideas and new approaches to transforming the library model in the 21st century.

As an academic and research library, the BnL has the status of a special library: about three-quarters of its printed collections come from other countries and they cover different fields of knowledge. In addition to over 1.8 million printed publications, the BnL also offers its readers an ever-growing number of digital documents: electronic journals, e-books, databases, digitised Luxembourgish works as well as archived digital documents and web pages originating in Luxembourg.
