University Librarian
The Netherlands
After an international career of over 20 years in library management and library automation, I joined Utrecht University in 2010. Previously, I have served as a university librarian at two other Dutch Universities (Nijmegen and Maastricht) and spent 3 years in the US. As an Executive Consultant for Nelinet (now merged in Lyrasis) I helped libraries on strategic and tactical planning, human resource management, facilities renovation, and other topics critical to library administrators.Other national and international activities include Chairing of the Dutch Consortium of University Libraries and the Royal Library (UKB), membership of the Board of a Public Library, LIBER Board membership, and President of OCLC’s Global Council 2015-2016.
