Bosnia & Herzegovina and the Bosnian Collections in the Library of Congress

Openly Available Digital Resources

In any guide to the Bosnian and Herzegovinian collections of the Library of Congress it is important to highlight digital resources. This section of the guide provides a brief selection of freely available Bosnian sites which are more useful for reference, rather than for deep dives into specific subjects. It is not a comprehensive list of what can be found on the Internet. Subscription content from the Library of Congress is described on the page Onsite Only Electronic Resources.

The page is organized into the following sections:

  • Online Catalogs from Bosnian Libraries
  • Digital Collections from Bosnia
  • Bosnian Language Internet News Sites
  • English Language Sites on Bosnia

Online catalogs from Bosnian Libraries

The three online catalogs described below have been the most useful in general reference work about Bosnia and Herzegovina and in the preparation of various online guides about Bosnian publications in the Library of Congress collections.

Digital Collections from Bosnia

The sites described in this section are freely available digital collections of Bosnian materials. These collections encompass mostly digitized materials from libraries or born-digital content. As more sites are identified, they will be listed here.

Bosnian Language Internet News Sites

Bosnians have a plethora of choices for general online news. Below are just a few sites from larger media companies, but more sites can be found by searching in a browser for the words "Vijesti iz Bosne i Hercegovine."

English Language Sites on Bosnia

Information about Bosnia and Herzegovina can be found on English-language sites from many realms such as news portals, newspapers, international organizations, and educational and cultural heritage institutions. Listed below is a small selection of such sites, for comprehensive coverage is impossible. In addition, other guides on Bosnia and Herzegovina created by the staff of the Library of Congress are described on the Introduction page of this guide.
