About the Coworking Library

It’s a collaborative project by the German Coworking Federation e.V. and DESKMAG. Johanna and Carsten have been actively working on this non-profit project for the past three years. Together they curate and maintain the Coworking Library.

They have received great support from the global coworking family! Especially by Cowork7/24 who have been building the website and included.co.

BTW: Soon the Global Coworking Survey, by DESKMAG will be out again! Please take part in this important quantitative research: http://coworkingsurvey.com/ You can already find many results for 2018 here.

Cowork 7/24 is a platform for coworking, where you can now book more than 150 coworking spaces in 22 cities, and they are growing fast particularly in Eastern Europe. They’ll soon be launching a new product to address the flexibility and cost-consciousness of digital nomads — a digital nomad coworking pass, valid at favourite digital nomad destinations.
