    Library 2.0 and beyond….

    ‘This is a blog about Library 2.0. Meaning:  developments in new internet technologies that are of importance to libraries.’ That was the original introduction to this blog. In January 2015 I got rid of the “Library 2.0″ buzzword and replaced it with “Data. The final frontier”. Because that’s exactly what it should be all about in libraries.

    My current job is Library Systems Coordinator in the Library and Information Systems Department of the Library of the University of Amsterdam. Before that (until April 2010) I was Head of the Library Systems Department.

    I am currently responsible for system administration and development of the digital library discovery layer Primo, and for new developments in this field. Besides that I am also working on the library data and information infrastructure and architecture.

    Between September 2012 and September 2013 I was acting as Coordinator of the Linked Open Data Special Interest Working Group of IGeLU (International Group of Ex Libris Users).

    Between September 2008 and September 2012 I have been a member of the IGeLU Steering Committee . From 2006 until 2008 I have been acting as Coordinator of the IGeLU MetaLib Product Working Group.
