Striving towards an equitable, democratic and sustainable society

The European Bureau of Library, Information and Documentation Associations is an independent umbrella association of library, information, documentation and archive associations and institutions in Europe.

EBLIDA Expert Groups

EBLIDA members can make proposals for the establishment of expert groups or working groups. Proposals must be submitted to the EBLIDA secretariat at least three weeks before an Executive Committee meeting.


An EBLIDA Expert Group is established to assist in formulating strategic aims for EBLIDA in cooperation with the director and to advise on issues pertaining to the area of expertise (e.g. copyright and IPR). An expert group should consist of recognized experts within the relevant domain and should ideally represent a geographical spread across the European membership of EBLIDA.

An expert group can be established by the Executive Committee. Members of the expert group are appointed and approved by the EC in cooperation with the director. If possible the Chair of an expert group should be a member of the EC. Apart from the Chair, members of an expert group need not be members of EBLIDA.

Experts groups are appointed for a three year period, but can be extended for further three year periods. There is no limit to the number of extensions, as there is no limit as to the number of years a member can serve on an expert group. The Chair of the expert group is appointed or reappointed by the EC in conjunction with the establishment or extension of the expert group.

The Expert Groups meet once or twice a year and communicate via email and on a listserv. Each expert group appoints a secretary and information coordinator. An expert group should consist of at least five members and no more than 12 members.

Dissemination

The activities of expert groups will be disseminated to EBLIDA members via EBLIDA News and the EBLIDA website.
