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.

This workshop, organised by the LIBER Leadership Programmes Working Group, will build on the Leadership in times of crisis webinar series organised by the current Emerging Leaders cohort and will aim to give participants the tools to help them act effectively as leaders during times of crisis. We will start by looking back on the 18 months of the global pandemic with a case study from an Emerging Leaders alumnus Ed Fay, Director of Library Services and University Librarian, Bristol, who will reflect on his own leadership journey through that period. Participants will then be split up into online groups where they will be able to use the powerful questions tool familiar to Emerging Leaders alumni in order to help them with their own leadership issues. We will then explore the ways in which we can build upon what we have learned during the global pandemic in order to better equip ourselves to deal with future crises which may emerge.
