The Leaders’ Conversations series is a global digital platform for library and archives leaders to share insights and developments of the field.

We are back this year with the theme Visualising Our Future: Masterplans of Libraries and Archives, which is particularly poignant to the library and archives world as we face multiple challenges these two years.  This webinar focuses on archives.
