Library Group

Target audience

Professionals working in libraries, information services, and corresponding units in universities.

Focus areas

The general area of interest is the role of libraries in the university context, with particular attention to development-oriented work to provide relevant services for students and researchers. The group seeks to promote cooperation between libraries and between libraries and other areas of administration especially by giving visibility to relevant resources and networks in the Nordic countries. The focus areas of the period are:

  • Open Science
  • Learning environments
  • Competency development
