This Ex-Libris Exhibition is planning to make guest appearances. Hence the first guest appearance is to take place in Berlin as a sideshow of the main exhibition of the heritage of Glagolitic script and Croatian literature: "Three Languages and Three Scripts of One Nation" at the Staatsbibliothek in the beginning of 2002. The exhibit is easy to transport and the catalog is printed bilingually (Croatian and English). Thereafter the plan is to organize guest appearances in Zadar, Split and Dubrovnik. We welcome all possibilities for guest appearances abroad. If any of our friends from the AMAC network wish to have the catalog they can place an order This is one of the ways of expressing our Croatian awareness and our place in the world. As to how successful we have been in this sense, we leave that to the decision of the numerous visitors to this Exhibition and to our E pages.
We also invite our dear friends of the AMAC network to visit us. Soon the E pages of the University Library of Rijeka will come out with a virtual exhibition of Glagolitic script as an electronic reflection of the actual exhibition that has for 33 years now since it was first put up been a display of this theme that is unique in the world.
