About

The Committee for the Support of Libraries (CSL) was founded in 2003 by representatives of Greek and international organizations to contribute to the development of libraries in Greece.

Being committed to free and open exchange of information, the Committee’s main goal is to contribute to the modernization and development of Greek libraries and information centers in their efforts to provide quality services to their users/clients.

Today libraries are facing increasing pressures, technological challenges and difficulties in securing ample funds. Problems and issues that some libraries are dealing with in a given country have already been resolved in libraries of other countries. CSL strongly believes that exchanges of ideas and experiences as well as cooperation are undoubtedly the keys to effective solutions of common problems.

The Committee’s goal to keep abreast with latest developments in library world and to attract professionals to support its activities, CSL organizes international conferences, workshops, panel discussions and lectures to present the latest developments in information technology and libraries with a program of professionals that derive from library and information science from several countries. Additionally CSL was engaged with the publication of the online journal SYNERGASIA from 2016 to 2015 in order to present current topics of interest to the information professionals.

Through continuous interaction and collaboration with the entire spectrum of libraries, educational organizations and other institutions, the efforts of the Committee focus on helping Greek libraries become learned information centers for the dissemination of information and the diffusion knowledge in their respective communities.


Synthesis of OEEB

The democratic structure of CSL is reflected in the existing equality between its members. The members of CSL work collaboratively, deciding in accordance with the majority decisions and with respect to the diversities of the libraries and organizations represented therein. Currently the members are:
