“MASUD: We joined LIBER a year ago because they’re doing innovative work in copyright and text mining initiatives, on Open Science in general, research data management and open access. We wanted to look beyond the institutional processes to see how we can collaborate more widely, both nationally and internationally. LIBER seemed like the right platform on which to establish those core principles.
LOUISE: For me, the most important thing has been getting the global perspective. I’m focused at the moment on the UK, but at the LIBER conference it has been very interesting to learn about different policies in different countries.
MASUD: Communication has been very good from LIBER’s side. Lots of new inititiatives are coming along. It’s a trustworthy organisation and hopefully the more we are involved with LIBER the more we can input into the organisation as well.”
