Contradiction between intellectual property world policy and freedom of information as a basic human right are nowadays a top subject in the world of librarianship. The law concerning author’s rights in Serbia is favorable to libraries because it permits them to give all kind of information and lend their members everything they have in their collections in any format except for commercial usage. It is very important to emphasize that librarians should be familiar with the world policy and praxis, to avoid the possibility of putting their users in unfavorable position because of the ignorance on the subject.

Serbian librarianship has a representative in the group for intellectual property of the international library consortium eIFL. Through the membership in European association of research libraries – LIBER and International federation of library association – IFLA it is also connected with world trends and discussions concerning the library rights and rights of their members to use for non-commercial needs all the publications from library collections.

Principle of universal availability of publications as a part of human right to freedom of information is endangered nowadays by publisher’s re­quests to exclude electronic publications from the international interlibrary loan system and to introduce many new restrictions concerning their use. Through its representatives, Serbian librarianship is actively included in international activities for protection of library user’s rights, and through the educations for librarians and researchers it is working on the explanation of these problems to the people in Serbia.
