Already the ancient nations revered the idea of wise people and recorded their script for anything in order to preserve the important heritage for future generations. The libraries became locations to hiding wisdoms of mankind over many centuries. Internet not changed on it. On the contrary. Internet became a great library of information, which performs essentially the same role as traditional libraries, just another form.
What role in the 21st century will have a traditional library? Equally important as in the past. Evidence of this is the great decision of the powerful of this world to bring back to humanity the greatest ancient library in Alexandria in Egypt. People in conjunction with modern technical and technological advances have in fact achieved only one: the library and Internet existed in symbiosis and complement each other. The State Scientific Library in Prešov has the same interest.
This underpage will offer insight into the history and library´s mission, which predetermines the cultural and scientific heritage to protect and make available.
