Top 10 Presentations from LIBER 2017

Posted: 19-09-2017 Topics: LIBER 2017

Our 2017 Annual Conference in Patras, Greece was a great success, largely thanks to the informative and thoughtful presentations given by professionals from LIBER libraries across Europe and our broader global library community.

After the conference, we asked all delegates to share their opinions via a survey. Using the results of the survey, we’ve compiled a list of the 10 most highly rated presentations from LIBER 2017. In total, 13 presentations are listed. The three presentations which share joint first place were each given a 100% approval score (the combined ‘good’ and ‘very good’ rating) by delegates.
