European research libraries to meet in Budapest

LIBER, Europe's largest organisation of specialised and research libraries, will hold its annual conference in Budapest between July 5 and 7, the Hungarian Academy of Sciences Library and Information Centre (MTA KIK), which is organising the event, said on Thursday.

The conference, held for the 52nd time, will be dedicated to subjects such as future challenges for libraries, the preservation and development of public collections, open access to and management of research data, new user services and scientific networking, MTA KIK said in its statement.

“Situated at the junction of information and knowledge, research libraries function as reliable nodes linking communities, the main objective of the Open Access and Open Science initiatives,” the statement quoted Julien Rochet, the head of LIBER, as saying.

The conference will be held in Hungary for the second time.
