Call For Papers

DEADLINE EXTENDED - Please submit your proposal before 15th January 2023

We live in a perilous and polarized world. People need the assistance of trusted organisations to be equipped to advance their lives. Research libraries are gateways to the scientific and scholarly information that is vital to address these critical issues, as well as to reach out to research communities. They are both facilitating flows of scientific information for all and encouraging all individuals and groups to find their own way to data and information.

Capitalising on their central position, research libraries can perform as trusted hubs that reliably connect communities together. Trust is re-surfacing as a concept that should be omnipresent in their mission and activities, from welcoming physical spaces for study and recollection to advanced services for emergent research. Critical responsibilities, such as engagement, adaptation, and sustainability, enable libraries to set up spaces, services and collections that enable their communities to progress.


We ask our community to submit their proposals for contribution in our LIBER2023 conference describing and analyzing how – in a way that inspires and instils trust – they work on:

Supporting the pillars of Open Science
Developing independent and inclusive collections
Building sustainable infrastructures
Managing data and information for a new kind of intelligence
Addressing the post-pandemic challenges in education
Engaging with libraries’ communities
Enabling autonomy in scholarly publishing

Submission Formats

Presentation of research-based solutions, with a clear illustration on the methods used, the ways they can be applied, the results;
