This RLUK virtual symposium is open to all. You do not need to work for an RLUK institution to attend.
This online symposium will explore the nature and extent of digital scholarship occurring within research libraries across the international research library community. It will bring together representatives from the international research library community, European library networks and the academic community to discuss the challenges we continue to have and progress we have made in the past years. The symposium will provide delegates with an overview of emerging trends and commonalities between different approaches, and areas of potential collective working and collaboration.
