Overview

The Corona pandemic still has a firm grip on our daily lives. Scientific institutions such as university libraries are also affected.
We have therefore placed this summit under the motto of sustainable crisis management in libraries. The online meeting will focus on the competencies and strategies libraries will need in the future in order to be prepared for crises and remain flexible in case of emergency. It will also be about how we can maintain or even expand library services.

We look forward to your contributions and requests to speak.
