Steven Claeyssens

Members Council Member Chair - Research community
MC Term: January 2019 - December 2021
Curator of Digital Collections National Library of the Netherlands Netherlands Other

I am Curator of Digital Collections at the KB, the national library of the Netherlands, and member of the KB Lab team. I hold an MA in Philology (Ghent, Belgium), an MA in Book and Publishing Studies (Leiden, the Netherlands) and I completed a PhD on publishing history. I have always been interested in writing and reading, in publishing and philology, in research and libraries. In recent years my focus has shifted to all things digital: Digital Humanities, digital publishing, digital source criticism and the use of (textual) heritage data in research. I am a member of Europeana’s Library Working Group.
