The Nordic-Baltic-Russian Network on the History of Books, Libraries and Reading

HIBOLIRE is a multinational and multidisciplinar network of scholars in the fields of book history, history of libraries and history of reading.

The aims of the network are:

  • to enhance cooperation between individual members and their organisations
  • to disseminate information
  • to organise seminars, summer schools and conferences.

HIBOLIRE seeks to create opportunities for an exchange of scholars between academic institutions, support doctoral students and ultimately, start research and other projects such as popularisation of the research results and establishing an international scholarly journal.
