LIBER is a foundation registered in the Netherlands. Our work is guided by library professionals from across Europe. They serve on our Executive Board, Committees and Working Groups.


Executive Board

The Executive Board is made up of senior library professionals. Board members take the lead in directing LIBER’s Strategy and activities. They delegate responsibility for the delivery of the Strategy, and the day-to-day management of the organisation to the LIBER Office, through the Executive Director.



A number of Committees make a significant contribution to the work of the Executive Board and LIBER as an organisation.


Working Groups

Over 100 professionals from LIBER libraries volunteer on our Working Groups. The groups address important areas of work for the research library community. All staff in LIBER libraries are welcome to get involved. Learn more.


Accountability, Statutes & Regulations

Our results are reported through this website, in LIBER mailings and at the Annual Meeting of LIBER Participants, held every year at LIBER’s Annual Conference.
