    Our aims
    The German Library Association exists to promote German libraries, the study of librarianship and information science, the further development of libraries and cooperation between all libraries and institutions of librarianship. We embrace the common concerns of librarianship and information.
    We focus on strengthening the position of libraries and the institutions of librarianship within politics and society. Our objective is to increase awareness of our impact on culture and education. We promote the advancement of librarianship.
    Our mission includes the promotion of reading and the adoption of modern information techniques as indispensable pre-requisites for participation in society, knowledge and information.
    About the German Library Association
    The German Library Association (dbv) is the professional body representing all German libraries and uniting them as equal partners, irrespective of size or sector, ranging from the largest state or university library down to the smallest local community library and including special libraries, church libraries, public library service centres and training institutions. For the past few years sponsors from the academic and economic sectors have actively supported the work of the dbv, which also welcomes library patron groups.
    We cooperate with numerous national and international committees and organisations on behalf of our approximately 2,000 members. At the political level the dbv is headed by the President and at the executive level by the Executive Committee with the advisory assistance of a Board including representatives from both the library and political sectors. Nine Sections corresponding to professional areas of interest and 16 branches at federal state level further represent the interests of our members. Their activities are supported and coordinated by the head office in Berlin.
    We keep our members up to date on our work through our Newsletter, the International Newsletter, the dbv yearbook, individual articles in professional journals, our Annual General Meeting and regular updates to our website.
  • Our organisation
    The Members’ Assembly is the top-level organ of our association. Assembly members determine the Association’s policy guidelines and so reach decisions on all matters of fundamental importance.
    The President and the two Vice-Presidents are leading political or administrative personalities, elected to office by the Members’ Assembly. They represent the Association in the public sphere and advise the Executive Committee and Board on all important decisions.
    The Executive Committee is likewise elected by the Members’ Assembly. It consists of three representatives of academic and public libraries respectively. The Chairman or Chairwoman is elected as an additional member of the Committee from the academic and public sectors in turn. The Committee is responsible for managing the activities of the dbv and acts as its official representative. The Chairman or Chairwoman must be a professional librarian; the remaining six members represent public and academic libraries in equal proportions.
    The Board supports the work of the Executive Committee. Its members include the Chairmen and Chairwomen of the federal branches and the sections, together with representatives of national, federal state and local government associations, the German Research Foundation and independent library funding bodies. The Board debates problems of particular significance for the library system and serves our Association in an advisory function.
    Our regional branches represent our interests at federal state level. Their chief concern is to promote the library and information system within each state, to enhance understanding of its significance and implications, to improve cooperation within the appropriate institutions and to discuss matters of common professional interest. The regional branches work closely with the central federal association, professional institutions and other organisations.
    Our Association is divided into nine Sections. Each Section embraces libraries of similar size or sector, enabling them collaborate, exchange know-how and work on common solutions to professional problems.
    We have created expertise groups, task forces and specialist commissions to deal with specific issues.
    Services Commission
    Management Commission
    Law Commission
    Expertise groups
    Libraries and Schools
    Libraries for Children and Young People
    Acquisitions and Collections Development
    Intercultural Library Work
    The Head Office is the central point of exchange, assisting the Association’s organs, running the day-to-day business and linking to a network of multiple contacts.
