Presentation Open Access
These are the slides from the LIBER 2021 Session: Knowledge Café
This year we would like to ask for your input on the new strategy that LIBER will develop for the 2023-2027 period. With LIBER’s current Strategy (2017-2022) coming to a close, we would like to invite our members to join us in our effort to think back and assess LIBER’s efforts since 2017 (being at the forefront of representing research libraries in Europe and advocating for the future of Open Science). 2020 was undoubtedly a rocky and unpredictable year and LIBER, more so than before, ensured the delivery of services to our wide network while also running our virtual events. This enabled us to reach every corner of Europe and to especially invite members of underrepresented areas to join our online activities (which was not always possible for them before). As we are currently developing the foundation for our next LIBER Strategy, we invite all conference participants to join us during this Knowledge Cafe and help shape the vision for the next LIBER Strategy.
According to LIBER President, Jeannette Frey, “Our network is the biggest source of valuable information when it comes to strategising. The needs and wishes of our network must be addressed as part of this crucial procedure to create a new LIBER strategy. And of course, the new strategy is so much more than simply a document. It must be a living and breathing document that we can all utilise and refer to. As such, we would gladly appreciate your input in this interactive session/Knowledge Café on the topic.”
