Abstract

Library Practice in Developing Interreligious Dialogue in Bosnia and Herzegovina

Interreligious dialogue as an important matter, as much as the burning issues in today’s B&H society, should be recognized by library community as a great opportunity for different library practices. Scientific community plays an important role in building better future and therefore it must take a part in building and strengthening interreligious dialogue. In this regard, this paper examines the ways in which librarians should identify their role in social support within building a better society through providing materials needed and giving a strong information structure by producing important research tool – bibliographies, as well through producing scientific papers and organizing workshops, which are considered to be examples of good practice. Paper aims to encourage B&H theology librarians to get socially engaged and more involved in order to give strong support for user-required and user-driven social issues. This paper also aims to present today’s sensibility of interreligious dialogue and reality in B&H and for that purpose all reviews are focused on five existing 5 theological faculties in B&H: Islamic Theological Faculty University of Sarajevo, Catholic Theological Faculty University of Sarajevo, Franciscan Theology in Sarajevo, Theological-catechetical Institute in Mostar and Orthodox Theological Faculty "St. Basil of Ostrog" in Foča. The study is a contribution to building the stronger ground for interreligious dialogue in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
