Since the WLIC in 2017 we have seen some changes in the membership of the steering group for the NOIR SIG. We've said farewell to Winston Roberts from the National Library of New Zealand who has moved on to convene the National Library and Information Policy SIG. Meanwhile we've welcomed Sonto Moleme from the National Library of South Africa, and Ekaterina Fedorova, from the National Library of Russia in St. Petersburg. This means the SIG now has representatives from the Netherlands, Canada, South Africa and Russia.

The current steering group for the SIG consists of:

• Katharina Beberweil (Manager of the Library and Information Centre of IBFD, The Netherlands), convener since May 2016
• Francesco Manganiello (Director, Stakeholder Relations and International Affairs, Library and Archives Canada / Government of Canada)
• Sonto Moleme (Director, Information Access & Cape Town Campus Coordinator, National Library of South Africa)
• Ekaterina Fedorova (Specialist, Division of International Activities The National Library of Russia)
