History of the Library

The Library of the Faculty of Forestry is the largest professional Library in the field of forestry sciences in the country. There is no official information about the Library work from 1920 (Department of Forestry - Faculty of Agriculture) because the entire library holdings were burned down during the bombing of Belgrade in 1944. The Library was established in 1949 and moved into the building given to the Faculty of Forestry, into the rooms which were not constructed for the Library. The Library is still in the same place, but an additional store was built.
The number of publications decreased sharply during the nineties, because of the economic crisis and
international isolation.
We hope that the holdings will be filled up again by the restoration of the old contacts.
