Activities for the national library of the Netherlands (KB)Edit

I'm the GLAMwiki-coordinator for the Koninklijke Bibliotheek, the national library of the Netherlands (KB) in The Hague. This means that I conceive, initiate and coordinate projects/activities to strengthen the connection between the (knowledge, collections and data of) KB and Wikimedia projects and communities.

In 2015 I'll coordinate and execute multiple GLAMwiki-projects and activities (text in Dutch) for KB

Until october 2014 I was a coordinator of the first Wikipedian-in-Residence project of the Netherlands.

For questions, remarks, suggestion etc. feel free to contact me via

Off-work activitiesEdit

Besides my professional activities for the KB I occasionally work on wiki-projects in my own time, most notably on the Dutch Wikipedia and Commons, increasingly more on Wikidata and to a lesser extent on the English Wikipedia.
