Barbara Lison President-elect of the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA) had a virtual presentation and keynote speaker Lynn Silipigni Connaway gave presentation how libraries can support the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG). All together there were more than 20 presentations and one poster presentation.

Among EURASLIC members Olivia Karin Diehr from Leibniz Institute for Baltic Sea Research Library was talking about the effects of the German Projekt DEAL, Sofija Konjević and Marina Mayer presented information infrastructure projects developed by Centre for Scientific Information of Ruđer Bošković Institute. EURASLIC members were involved in AquaDocs project that was presented at the conference. Tamsin Vicary and Maria Kalentsits, with co-authors presented ASFA activities with emphasis on CECAF-PESCAO project, while Jen Walton and Pauline Simpson presented IODE updates. There were several very interesting presentations from Marine Institute’s researchers. EURASLIC as a group was presented by poster entitled “EURASLIC: Connecting Libraries Through Time and Distance”.

During the conference EURASLIC Board and Business meetings were held. As the polls for EURASLIC elections were closed right before the conference the old Board was discharged and the new one was appointed during the EURASLIC Business meeting. Stephanie Ronan as new member of the Executive Board is elected for the position of vice-president.
