LIBER Annual Conference 2015

The 44th LIBER Annual Conference, hosted by Senate House Library, Imperial College Library, LSE Library and UCL Library Services, London, UK, will be held from Wednesday 24 June to Friday 26 June 2015. The sessions that take place in the Beveridge Hall will be streamed live.

It is clear that libraries have a key role in enabling open science and apparent that libraries will have to show leadership, adapt how they measure impact and deliver services, and partner with other stakeholders in order to fulfil this role.

This conference invites papers that address these issues, explore the movement towards open science practice and policies, and provide examples of how libraries are acting as enablers and identifying and addressing key challenges related to implementing open science principles.

The conference is hosted by Senate House Library, Imperial College London, LSE Library and UCL Library Services, London, UK.
