anna_1.jpgAt the Academic Council ceremony the Rector Professor Anastas Gerdzhikov, Ph.D., awarded Associate Professor Anna Angelova, PhD, with the Blue Ribbon Honorary Sign of Sofia University “St. Kliment Ohridski” for her professionalism and dedicated work as Director of the Sofia University Library “St. Kliment Ohridski ". Associate Professor Angelova expressed her gratitude for receiving this exceptional academic distinction. She emphasized that, above all, she is accepting the award as appreciation of the work of her colleagues at the Sofia University Library and as acknowledgement of the Sofia University Library. "I would like to thank my colleagues for their professional determination and high proficiency."

Associate Professor Anna Angelova expressed her gratefulness to her professors from the Faculty of Slavic Philology, the Faculty of Pedagogy, the Faculty of History and to Sofia University for the opportunities given to her to study and develop her career as an educator and researcher. She referred to the words of Academician Lihachov, who defined the process of searching for rare books in the library as "library archeology”, and added: "As a researcher, I dedicate my study on the Sofia University Library collections, on the search for rare and valuable books and on the objective of creating special collections of the reach library funds".
The Director of the Sofia University Library "St. Kliment Ohridski" emphasized that librarians meet the “silence” of the unread books every day - a phenomenon that is being discussed by scholars, librarians and philosophers. She recalled Umberto Eco, who owned a large personal library of over 40,000 volumes. Once asked by a journalist, whether he had read all of them, he replied - "Of course, not, but I keep purchasing old books, not because I will be able to read them, but because of the challenge of owning the books." Associate Professor Angelova shared that according to Umberto Eco's calculations, if a person reads one book every day from the age of 10 to the age of 80, he could have read approximately 25,200 volumes, and Eco says “this is a very little amount, having in mind the millions unread books”. Prof. Angelova added: "That is why the unread books are much more important and more valuable than the read once."
The Director of the Library Associate Professor Angelova, stated that today, under the fast development of new technologies, the world around us is changing, and we need the libraries. "The book format is changing, the way of reading is changing, our profession is changing, and even the library as institution is changing. However, the function of the library remains, and it is to preserve all of these challenges. The fundamental truth is that, there can be no successful academic institution without a large and well organized library, to keep the challenges of the “read and unread books”, in order to pass the knowledge onto the next generations of students and professors", said Associate Professor Angelova and thanked again for the received award.
