Attending this event?
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.

Join our Session ‘Open Access: a Case for Diversity and Inclusion’

This session will be chaired by Martin Moyle, University College London, United Kingdom
  • Societal impact and open research: results of a joint partner investigation, Henk van den Hoogen, University Library Maastricht, the Netherlands; Timon Oefelein, Springer Nature, Germany
  • Speed talk: Online Library Access and Privacy: Best Practice, Jos Westerbeke, Erasmus University Rotterdam, the Netherlands
  • Open Access - A challenge for smaller research libraries, Elisa Herrmann, Stefanie Paß, Jana Rumler, Museum für Naturkunde Berlin - Leibniz Institute for Evolution and Biodiversity, Germany

In this session, our speakers will talk about Open Access from various perspectives. Would you like to hear about the Open Access collaboration between a national university association, an academic publisher, and research libraries? Could you use some hands-on recommendations for tackling privacy issues? Or are you interested in hearing about how even small libraries could implement Open Access infrastructures? Join this session!

In the first presentation, Henk van den Hoogen and Timon Oefelein present the results of a unique collaborative Open Science initiative by the Association of Universities in the Netherlands (VSNU), Springer Nature and several academic libraries in the Netherlands. This presentation provides background to the initiative, its rationale, objectives, and interdisciplinary make up, as well as summarising its key results and those from two large global researcher surveys to do with researchers’ motivations towards SDG research and usage trends of both OA and non-OA content. The presentation will be of interest to academic support librarians supporting researchers with publication and impact, as well as data librarians interested in innovative new SDG mapping technology, and bibliometric and members of the research assessment community interested in new ways of defining and capturing the societal impact of research.
Next, Jos Westerbeke will give a lightning talk about Federated Identity Management (FIM4L), one of LIBER’s Working Groups. In hist talk, they will provide insights and recommendations into authentication practices (single sign-on) for licensed materials and differing privacy issues. He will also discuss what to do when publishers delay implementing privacy enhancing changes and how the Working Group can help with setting up the right configuration for federated SSO access according to a broadly supported uniform library SSO method conforming to FIM4L principles.
Finally, Elisa Herrmann, Stefanie Paß, and Jana Rumler will provide insights from the Museum für Naturkunde Berlin, a small integrated research museum within the Leibniz Association. In their presentation, they will discuss the future activities for the implementation and promotion of Open Access in their institution, which include an in-house publication fund, the development of Green Open Access infrastructures, and the handling of OA publications in the acquisition process. As a smaller institution themselves, they will also pose the question of how big the gap is in the implementation of Open Access between large and small libraries. They will then identify possibilities to narrow the gap and, in the best case, create structures that will help smaller libraries to promote Open Access and Open Science in their institutions.
