I’m a librarian and a researcher in information science. I published a book in 2014 that explores the socio-technical construction of national digital libraries in Austria, France, and the UK. As director of the ISSN International Centre and chair of ISO Technical Committee 46 - Information & Documentation, I’m involved with the identification, the description and the preservation of printed and digital resources at the global level. I am committed to promote system, resource and data interoperability to build sustainable cultural and scientific digital environments to benefit the largest community. I serve on Europeana Foundation Advisory Board as expert in digital strategies.
