Association of European Research Libraries (LIBER)

LIBER was founded as an association in 1971 under the auspices of the Council of Europe.The driving force behind the new association was a small dedicated group of European librarians, led by Jean-Pierre Clavel, Director of the Bibliothèque Cantonale et Universitaire, Lausanne. Their goal was to give European research libraries, national and university, a distinctive and compelling voice in the international library community. The chosen name LIBER (Ligue des Bibliothèques Européennes de Recherche) was redolent of both books and freedom.

In the years following its establishment, LIBER’s growth mirrored changes happening politically in Europe as the sudden collapse of Communism in the late 1980s led to new contacts between libraries and scholars.

European Association of Middle East Librarians

MELCom International tries to achieve its aims in an atmosphere that is both professional and informal. The main focus of activities is the annual conference, which serves as a platform for the exchange of ideas and experiences.

Founding of MELCom International

In its earliest form Melcom was founded in the UK, well before 1979. Founding president is Derek Hopwood, who kept the presidency till 1990, when he was succeeded by Jan Just Witkam, who held the presidency till 1998. International contacts had led to a joint conference with French colleagues in Aix-en-Provence, France, in 1979, the first of many. The following year the venue was in Oxford. In 1981 the conference was held in West Berlin, hosted by the Staatsbibliothek, in its new building.

The advantages were evident: MELCom provided an international exchange of ideas on librarianship and book research in a friendly and professional environment, combined with informal activities and scholarly tourism.Read More...
