Jisc and CNI leaders conference

7-9 July 2021



What to expect in 2021

The COVID-19 pandemic has reshaped the research landscape. The online Jisc and CNI leaders conference will focus on the pivotal role the library will play in enabling universities to equip themselves to respond. We'll also explore the potential disruption it could cause.

Through the conference theme - at the frontier of research practice: the university library as a catalyst - we'll cover topics such as monographs and long-form scholarly works: transitioning to open, open and faster scholarly communication in a post-COVID-19 world, how research collections are evolving and researcher environments of tomorrow.
