Academic libraries typically identify supporting research as central to their mission. But they need to examine how researchers themselves relate to these mission statements, especially in view of reported changes to how researchers look for and share information online.

'The Role of Academic Libraries in Research Support' panel will provide an insight into initiatives to support research and future perspective of the leading academic libraries, both in Latvia and internationally. Professionals from Latvia, Finland and the United Kingdom will focus on crucial topics, such as the collaboration with researchers and academic staff, contribution to university rankings, open science etc.
