Manuscript librarians from across Europe will meet at the Staatsbibliothek Berlin from 28-30 November 2007 to discuss matters of mutual professional interest. This Third International Conference of LIBER’s Manuscript Librarians Group follows meetings at the Kungliga Biblioteket, Stockholm, in 2000 and at the Koninklijke Bibliotheek, The Hague, in 2003.

The conference will focus on ways in which we communicate the manuscript holdings of our institutions to researchers, to scholars and to the public who visit exhibitions and use the internet. The meeting will work towards a greater mutual knowledge and an active exchange of information and experiences among European libraries, in keeping with the aims of the Group.

There will be a limit of 100 participants. As we anticipate a high demand, you are advised to book early.

The LIBER Manuscript Librarians Group recognises the unique significance of manuscript and archive collections, not only for the world of research and learning but also for the wider audience of those interested in history and cultural heritage. The primary aims of the Group are to act as a forum for curatorial concerns, and to enhance understanding and practical cooperation among curators across Europe, taking account of the differences in approach which have occurred historically.
