Currently, there are no active Working Groups established within CMC. Here you can find the archive of previous Working Groups.
The Committee is working on developing a membership campaign to attract new LIBER members, particularly in countries in which LIBER is currently under-represented. It is also examining the potential for using new media – video, images, YouTube, Flickr, Facebook etc., through the new LIBER website – as an aid to member recruitment.
The Committee oversees LIBER branding for all its publications and communications.
LIBER templates for headed stationery, compliments slips, powerpoint presentations, business cards, etc. will be produced once the re-design of the LIBER website is complete. The Committee will also consider the range and design of LIBER leaflets and other ‘giveaways’ e.g. pens, post-it notes when the new website has been implemented. The Committee is also working on a LIBER brand manual which will be available shortly.
LIBER Ambassadors is a new initiative that has been developed with the aim of establishing in individual European countries a group of professionals who can share their knowledge of LIBER with other professionals in their countries in order to assist, promote and develop confidence and network opportunities.
LIBER Ambassadors will be a recognized face and a strong voice for LIBER in their country. They will be LIBER colleagues who are keen to represent the LIBER network, for example, at annual fairs, meetings, conferences, seminars, workshops and other events.
They are expected to maintain close communication with their national colleagues, both in person and by email, in order to raise awareness of the LIBER network.
There are various ways in which LIBER Ambassadors can help, for example, assisting in the organizing of mixer events; offering prospective member libraries and their professional staff some guidance and information on the LIBER community; going out into the community and establishing awareness of LIBER events; networking with guests and members; translating the LIBER information brochure into their own language and distributing it among academic librarians when attending events; liaising with the research library community in promoting LIBER’s activities and services with short announcements to appear in e.g. blogs, newsletters and welcome packs, on their posters, or on their websites.
YEP! Young European Professionals is the open network of young information professionals in university, research and national libraries across Europe.
YEP! connects young people across Europe and helps develops their talents in contributing to a dynamic, stimulating and open European library community.
A LIBER YEP! Master Class was held during the Aarhus Conference in 2010, Denmark, and the first impressions and reactions of participants were very positive. The YEP! Network on LinkedIn and Twitter @LiberYEP were also created.
