LIBER Innovation Award

The LIBER Award for Library Innovation was instituted by LIBER with support from OCLC.

It recognises the three abstracts which best describe innovative work within the overall theme of the Annual Conference. The criteria (in order of importance) for the Award are:

  • Level of innovation
  • Impact on the wider library community
  • Originality
  • Quality of the abstract

The three abstracts which best fulfil these criteria are selected by the Conference Programme Committee.

The winning abstracts of this year’s Innovation Awards will be announced beginning of June. Watch this space!
