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 derives from the SSHOC - Social Sciences and Humanities Open Cloud work in collaboration with the LIBER Citizen Science working group. It will be building on the outcomes of the session“ Citizen Science: What it means for SSH and how can multidisciplinarity be achieved?” that took place during the conference “Realising the European Open Science Cloud: Towards a FAIR research data landscape for the social sciences, humanities and beyond.” in November 2020.

The overarching aim of this workshop is to raise the awareness of the challenges and opportunities in libraries’ involvement with Citizen Science in SSH. It aims to explore the extent to which research libraries can serve as a bridge between researchers and citizens.

An approach based on the sharing of best practices and current research, the involvement of participants in the reflection of the respective roles and training needed, complemented by an open discussion, will shape the overall experience. One of the outputs of this workshop will be the production of actionable recommendations for research libraries and the SSHOC/SSH communities in the form of a report. This will be complemented by a proposed outline of potential awareness raising and training sessions (for librarians, researchers, and citizen scientists) that would help participants in implementing those recommendations.

This workshop will be an opportunity to create further synergies between LIBER, SSHOC and initiatives represented by the speakers and the participants.
