When is the next LIBER Annual Conference?

In 2021, our 50th Annual Conference will be held online (23-25 June). It will be co-hosted by both LIBER and the University of Belgrade Library.

LIBER conferences are normally always held at the beginning of the summer, either during the last two weeks of June or the first week of July (depending on the venue and national holidays).

When can I register?

Registration for LIBER 2021 will open on Thursday the 25th of March via Eventbrite. Thanks to our sponsors for enabling this conference to be free for all participants. If your institution is a LIBER member, make sure to register as a ‘LIBER Participant’ (search for your LIBER ID here) – in doing so, you will be entitled to reserved online seating.

Which platform will be used for the LIBER 2021 Annual Conference?

We will host our online conference using two online platforms – Sched and Zoom. More information about the programme and how to join sessions online will follow in the weeks leading up to the conference days.

What do I need to attend the virtual conference?

To attend the virtual conference, you need a good/stable internet connection, your device or computer, and a valid registration/ticket. You will be invited to create your schedule via our scheduling software (Sched) once the full conference programme will be available online.

Who can attend the conference?

The conference is open to anyone. It is mainly attended by research library directors and their staff. Popular topics of discussion include (but are not limited to) open science, open access, research data management, citizen science, copyright, metrics, digital humanities, and linked open data.

How are the locations of LIBER’s Annual Conference decided, and can my institution host it?

LIBER aims to ensure that the conference is hosted in a geographically diverse range of locations around Europe (this will begin again, post-Covid-19 and when travel is again possible). If your institution is interested in hosting an upcoming LIBER conference, please email our Secretary-General John MacColl.
