Access Lab is the place where libraries, publishers and library users can discuss challenges and solutions around discovery and access to digital content and services.
This year’s pandemic meant that we needed to move Access Lab online, attracting a larger audience from many parts of the world. We’ve made the decision to keep Access Lab online in 2021 to enable more participation internationally and to avoid any of the challenges Covid-19 continues to throw our way.
