2020 has been a very unusual year, with tremendous changes to the way in which we all interact, work and learn. Libraries have had to close their doors yet continue serving their communities in new and innovative ways.
With the COVID-19 restrictions imposed on many aspects of life today, organisations across the globe find themselves challenged to deliver more and more of their services remotely. National libraries are no exception, with online collaboration replacing much on-site instruction and research.
We are excited to announce a virtual panel of Directors of National Libraries. Participants will share their experiences and views on the role of National Libraries in times of economic and health crisis.
The round table will feature the following panel list:
Kira Stine Hansen, Deputy Director and Head of Copenhagen University Library and member of the Board of Directors of the Royal Danish Library
Dr. Hans Petschar, Director, Pictures Archives and Graphics Department, Austrian National LibraryOren Weinberg, Director, National Library of Israel
Vadim Duda, Director General, Russian State Library
