The National and University Library to file a lawsuit against the State of B&H
Two days after the electricity cutoff, the National and University Library of B&H has received a single donation in amount of 5,000KM from the Municipality of Novo Sarajevo, while other levels of authority remain silent.
“We have no other choice but to file a lawsuit against the state of B&H” said Director Ovčina “This is a state-level institution. The State of B&H failed to transfer a single convertible mark onto our account in 2011, while the Federation B&H terminated its financial support in 2012 although in past years it provided almost 100.000KM through different channels.”
The electricity cutoff also affects 45 other libraries across the country, which use COBISS online bibliographic and information system.
