LIBER Annual Conference Fund

At LIBER’s Annual General Assembly in 2005, members decided that a small premium should be added to the Annual Conference registration fee in order to permit grants to be made to assist member libraries in selected European countries to send representatives to attend LIBER Annual Conferences. The LIBER Annual Conference Fund supports participants from specific European countries each year on the basis of need and taking into account the location of the Annual Conference. The countries are agreed by the LIBER Executive Board annually at its October meeting, and decisions on applications to the Fund are made by the Conference Programme Committee.

The countries selected by the Executive Board for 2014 were Albania, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Belarus, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Georgia, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Macedonia, Montenegro, Portugal, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Turkey and Ukraine.
