Annual Meeting of the German MLA (AGMB)

21. - 22.09.2020


Dear Colleagues,

it is our pleasure to invite you to the Annual Meeting of the German Medical Library Association (Arbeitsgemeinschaft für medizinisches Bibliothekswesen e. V.) 2020, themed: “AGMB 2020: Into the next 50 years with innovation”.

Due to the still existing pandemic-related restrictions, the annual conference of the AGMB will this time be held virtually and only on two days. Nevertheless, there will be some interesting lectures and the popular short lectures in addition to the statutory general meeting. In the meeting points and the working teams you will have the opportunity to exchange experiences, discuss different topics and take many new ideas for your own library with you. This time the focus is on topics such as open access and open science, DEAL and research data management.

The poster session “From Practice for Practice” will provide an overview of current topics and projects in medical libraries. Please register your poster now.

Unfortunately, we will have to do without proven offers such as the Product Reviews and the personal discussions with the company exhibitors in the usual form this year. The originally planned workshop on the new PubMed interface will be held later in the year.

At the end of the first day, we look forward to welcoming you for a small, informal exchange.

We look forward to your participation and wish you and us good luck at our first virtual conference.
