LIBER Emerging Leaders Programme (Cohort 5 & 6)
This high-level seminar is aimed at the next generation of senior leaders at European research libraries. It has already been successfully completed by 80 library professionals.
Second Seminar – Note that the second seminar for Cohort 5 will now take place online on the 4th and 5th of October 2021 and no longer in-person. Additionally, to compensate for the originally planned in-person event in October 2021, LIBER will organise an event for Cohort 5 to be held in Odense, Denmark on the 5th July 2022 (the day before the LIBER 2022 Annual Conference starts). During this in-person event, any final remarks on the topic of the leadership seminar will be discussed and certificates will also be handed out.
More details on both events are to follow.
First Seminar – We had to take the difficult decision to postpone the first seminar for Cohort 6 to Spring 2022 (the dates and location are to be decided). This is due to the fact that there are still many delegates who cannot travel abroad and be physically present in Brussels in October. We want to create the necessary atmosphere and team spirit — the key goal of the first exercise of the seminar — hence, gathering together in-person would help us better achieve this.
Second Seminar – The second seminar of Cohort 6 will take place shortly before the LIBER 2023 Annual Conference begins.
More details on both seminars are to follow.
Benefits of the Emerging Leaders Programme
Completing the programme will be a benefit not only to you, as an individual, but also to your library. Research libraries are subject to constant change and transformation, and this programme helps library staff to be well-equipped to deal with whatever new challenges are on their way whether digital, financial or societal.
