European Network of Open Education Librarians Logo




This network was formed as a result of a meeting held at OE Global in Delft in April 2018. We have over 103 members from 27 countries, so far.

Calling all European academic librarians: please join the network to share your experiences with peers from across Europe. Please join us if you are not yet a member by mailing us at


A 3-year strategy for the European Open Education Librarian Network was published in May 2021. It leads our work.

European survey into Open Education in libraries of Higher Education
The results of our first survey of libraries in European institutions of Higher Education was published in June 2020: find it here. It was the first of its kind.
First results were published in the 2020 Envisioning Report for Empowering Universities, published in April 2020. See here for more information.

Our second annual survey on the topic of Open Education was published on 17 May 2021 and focused particularly on the work being carried out to implement the UNESCO Recommendation on OER. We received over 230 responses from 28 European countries. The report, entitled Open Education in European Libraries of Higher Education, is available here.
