IFOB has been founded as a nonprofit in December 2015 by Asim Maner, Riehen, Switzerland, and currently we have 79 members from 23 countries worldwide.
We don't have a headquarters and our editorial team works decentral- ised in two different countries:
Laine Farley - Oakland, CA, US
Georg Hartong - Deventer, The Netherlands
For questions, please contact our webmaster.
Our primary mission is to increase the public awareness of bookmarks by research, publications, activities, events and by growing a community of bookmark fans worldwide. To this end, the IFOB started this website in December 2015 with the aim to develop it into a public resource of knowledge about bookmarks.
The particular aim of the IFOB is to support its members in collecting & exchanging bookmarks and in retrieving, generating and sharing information about bookmarks. To achieve this goal we provide this website as a communication platform for our members. Further activities include circulating a newsletter, publishing papers and organising occasional meetings for its members.
