What LIBER libraries have to say...

LIBER is excellent value for money, provides a forum for international discussion and debate, holds an excellent annual conference attracting high quality speakers and delivers an increasing range of international and externally funded.

 – John Tuck, Interim Senate House Librarian, University of London, UK

For me LIBER is important as a meeting place: at the annual conferences you meet with colleagues from all over Europe and you get inspiration and ideas to bring home. The membership is so broad that you will no doubt find libraries with which you can identify and compare challenges and solutions.

– Svend Larson, Director of the State and University Library, Denmark

The leadership seminar is a process where you confront your feelings, have to reveal yourself, trust in each other. It’s a strong feeling. You are spending so many days together!

– Live Rasmussen, Head of Science Library, University of Oslo

What LIBER has made clear to me is that it is so good to have a colleague network abroad. In the past, I’ve had answers within an hour from colleagues all over Europe when I had a question, a problem, or wanted to know how to organize something. LIBER is the only place that is so all-European.

– Sylvia Van Peteghem, Chief Librarian at Ghent University Library, Belgium
