Current Partner Country 2019-22: The Netherlands
BID Partner Country Initiatives #Bib2Partnerland
Every three years, BID chooses a partner country with the aim of strengthening relations between the professional community in the partner country and the German library community. Every Partner Country round starts with the German Library Congresses, organized by BID. One special foreign library scene is represented as "guest of honour" or partner country.
Denmark was the first partner country in 2007, followed by Spain in 2010, Turkey in 2013, the USA in 2016 and the Netherlands in 2019. From up to 2022 it will the Czech Republic.
The aim of the program is to offer both existing cooperations and new bilateral initiatives in form of various events during this period, which focus on professional exchange. A commitee of German and Dutch colleagues is already working on these objectives.
