28th EBLIDA Annual Council Meeting & EBLIDA Conference
Dear EBLIDA Members, Dear Colleagues,
In light of recent public health crisis in Europe, and with the view to ensuring the well-being and safety of participants, the general public and assisting in the global response to combatting the spread of Coronavirus disease (COVID-19), we inform you that the EBLIDA Executive Committee (EC) held an extraordinary online meeting on 26 March 2020 to discuss the situation and decided the following:
- EBLIDA EC decided to decouple the EBLIDA Conference from the EBLIDA Annual Council Meeting. The EBLIDA Annual Council needs to approve several official EBLIDA documents; a meeting will be held in the second half of 2020.
- The decision was also taken to cancel the 2020 EBLIDA Conference in Belgrade and to examine different options for an EBLIDA event in the future.
- It was also decided to maintain the joint LIBER-EBLIDA workshop on Citizen science supporting sustainable development goals: the possible role of libraries and to transform it into a webinar.
Please check back later for more detailed information.
