18th biennial EURASLIC Meeting

From 6-9 May, 2019, the 18th EURASLIC Biennial Meeting was hosted by the Ruđer Bošković Institute in Zagreb, Croatia.

The conference was entitled “River of no Return: Sail or Sink”.  It signifies the changing role of libraries in the information age and their ability to sail with the flow in order to maintain their presence in today's digital environment. 

Most of us could not wait to see each other again after 2 years and, despite the drizzling weather, joined for a walk in Maksimir Park. After the pleasant walk, we all enjoyed the tasty snack together in the 'Choco café'.

During the conference a lot of interesting and inspiring presentations were presented on various topics like GDPR, Open Science, data management, copyright issues, new and innovative library services and activities, new publishing models, and so on.  All presentations will be available online and the conference proceedings will be published in the coming months.

Maria Kalentis gave an interesting workshop about the new developments in ASFA.  This was followed by a discussion to gain ideas from the attendees and to encourage European countries to renew active participation in ASFA.  The new developments are looking very promising.
