The 2018 EBLIDA NAPLE Annual Council and Conference was held in Strasbourg (France) on 30 and 31 May 2018.
The conference theme Libraries bridging borders attracted a great number of participants with almost 100 people attending the event.
The programme kicked off with a real prospective view from the keynote speaker Prof. Chris Welch (ISU)
Followed by an active panel discussion with Kathrin Merkle (CoE), Jukka Relander (Outgoing EBLIDA President) and Tine Vind (NAPLE Chair).
The second session provided practical insight into the role of librarians in a cross border environment, and the last session offered a good variety of workshops to choose from.
