After the meeting Mr. Goran Vasiljević moved to the Cataloguing & Acquisition Center to check the newest collection of books provided in advance for dedicated donation to the “Far East Society”. And Mr. Branimir Jovanović visited the Cataloguing Hall at which the Tesla Exhibition is to be situated, and the Innovation Space which the Library opens to showcase the state-of-the-art technologies and innovation ideas.
