How we work

Our 2018-2022 Strategy outlines our main areas of focus, including key topics such as Copyright Reform, Digital Humanities, Open Access, Metrics, and Research Data Management.

The Strategy is executed thanks to the dedication of the hundreds of volunteers who serve on our Executive Board, Steering Committees and Working Groups, as well as through our participation in international projects is key to the execution of our Strategy.

LIBER Working Groups

LIBER’s Working Groups address important areas of work for the research library community. Participation is open to all staff in LIBER institutions.

The topics of the Working Groups relate directly to our 2018-2022 Strategy, and each group has clearly set objectives to be achieved in one or two years.
