AbstractOne of the achievements of a modern state is the care for minorities. In Slovenia,there are two autochthon national communities, Italian and Hungarian. The article brings a short estimate on whether minority problems are adequatety regulated in Slovenian legislation and standards in the field of librarianship.Eventual failings and possibilities for their improvement are discussed.Ali statements, evaluations and considerations refer mostly to the area of Slovensko Primorje, respectively municipalities of Koper, Izola and Piran where members of Italian minority are living. However, general statements and proposed solutions can be applied wider on the territory of Slovenia.
