OCLC-LIBER “Building for the future” – Closing Plenary

Join LIBER and OCLC for the closing plenary session of the ‘Building for the future’ event series. This multi-year engagement series, based on LIBER’s 2023-2027 strategy, will present a vision for the future of research libraries. LIBER and OCLC will host a series of discussions to collectively examine, explore, and ideate around the impacts of modern-day disruptions in the research library field.


Thursday 6 June 2024 at 14:00 (BST) / 15:00 (CEST) / 09:00 (EDT) / 06:00 (PDT) (Duration: 75 minutes)

Libraries are navigating a complex world awash with data and data supporting technologies, such as AI and machine learning – and this is clearly impacting the way they operate and transforming the services they offer. Between November 2023 and April 2024, OCLC and LIBER jointly convened three interactive discussion sessions focusing on opportunities and responsibilities in providing state-of-the-art academic library services that are responsive to this emerging data-driven ecosystem. 

The closing plenary session will offer key insights gleaned from these sessions, synthesized from the numerous small group discussions of transcontinental participants from the LIBER and Research Library Partnership networks. A moderated panel of LIBER representatives will respond to this overview and reflect upon how these discussions can help research libraries collaboratively plan in these challenging times.
