LIBER 2021 Online has ended
This year, the LIBER 2021 Conference is a special one indeed. That’s because our organisation is celebrating our 50th anniversary and this year also marks the 50th conference that we’ve run. Over the years our conference has served as a vibrant hub for research libraries from all over Europe. Hence, this is a milestone to be celebrated and we are very excited to welcome you at our upcoming (virtual) conference!
The conference will be digitally co-hosted by our colleagues at the University of Belgrade Library in Serbia. As such, we aim to recreate and showcase our vibrant community that is the LIBER Network, while at the same time hosting our conference online and ensuring the safety of all conference participants.

Make sure you visit our virtual professional exhibition & networking space here: lbve.rs. You can also visit our virtual poster exhibition here and make sure to cast your vote for your favourite poster by filling in this form.

Feel free to browse through our digital programme and start building your customised schedule. If you haven’t registered for our conference please make sure that you do so here.
