Clara Riera Quintero has been director of Research Library services at the Universitat Oberta de Catalunya (UOC) in Barcelona, Spain since 2015.
She has worked in the library since 2008 in a number of different functions related to research support. Previous positions in this library were as technician responsible for metrics and research assessment. Before that, she worked on bibliometrics in Hospital del Mar Medical Research Institute, Barcelona.
Being part of a LIBER working group gives me the opportunity to go deep into a key topic on research support, skills and competences of library staff, through networking and exchanging ideas and experiences from other academic libraries.
