LIBER 2020 Belgrade – Building Trust With Research Libraries
June 24 - June 26
LIBER’s Annual Conference is a key meeting point for research library professionals.
Held in late June or early July, the conference brings library directors and their staff together for three days of networking and collaboration. Delegates mainly come from Europe but people from around the world are welcome, and we regularly welcome guests from countries including Australia, Canada and the United States.
The goal of the conference is to identify the most pressing needs for research libraries, and to share information and ideas for addressing those needs.
Before the main conference, many delegates join workshops and meetings for LIBER Working Groups, and following the conference social events such as tours of the area are arranged for those who wish to participate.
LIBER’s 2020 Annual Conference will take place in Belgrade, Serbia from 24-26 June, and will be hosted by the University of Belgrade.
The Call for Papers for LIBER’s 2020 Annual Conference in Belgrade from 24 to 26 June, is now open.
The deadline for submitting a proposal is 13 January 2020. Guidance and conference topics are outlined in detail below.
Building Trust With Research Libraries
“In the nonstop tsunami of global information, librarians provide us with floaties and teach us to swim.” ― Linton Weeks
In times of fake news and discussions about science, findings and facts, society needs research libraries to safeguard trustworthy information. In the digital information overflow, libraries help students and researchers to find what they are looking for and to put that information in context.
From Open Science and world-wide sharing of publications and data to the long-term preservation of collections, research libraries carry important responsibilities. They must remain reliable, authoritative and adaptable in a continuously transforming society.
During these turbulent times, strong library leaders are vital to ensure that research libraries remain as frontrunners in innovation and gateways to information and knowledge.
