Liaison Counsel German National Library Germany Cultural Heritage

I am an art manager who enhances the impact of cultural heritage by digital means. Co-creating formats like the popular hackathon Coding da Vinci. I endorse participation and free licenses fostering visibility of digital GLAM content. This is why I work as Liaison Counsel at the German National Library to encourage cooperation and openness in digital transformation. On behalf of the DNB, I initiated the WikiLibrary Manifesto. I work to increase the quality of metadata through Authority Control to foster retrieval and linked data. In 2019 I initiated the ENA Climate Action Group and scientists4future.
