Subject: [OpenGLAM] Introduction of new OpenGLAM Community Manager

Dear all,

My name is Lieke Ploeger and from December onwards I'm working at the Open Knowledge Foundation as the new Community Manager for the OpenGLAM initiative. I'm very excited to help boost free and open access to online cultural heritage material through this network, and look forward to collaborating with you!

Before joining OKF, I've worked at the National Library of the Netherlands as a project leader in the Research department. Since 2008 I was involved in large-scale European research projects in the areas of digitisation and digital preservation, such as IMPACT, Europeana Newspapers and SCAPE. Especially through IMPACT, a project focused on improving access to historical text material, I've experienced the value that large sets of digital data can bring researchers in areas such as language technology, document analysis and digital humanities.

In this new position, I look forward to using my existing experience in community building, external communication and digital cultural heritage to extend the OpenGLAM network of cultural heritage professionals. Concretely, this means that I will be co-editing the OpenGLAM blog, managing the OpenGLAM social media channels, organising future workshops and events and identifying and managing new partnerships and collaboration opportunities. All this of course to support the great work you are all doing to build a cultural commons!

Feel free to contact me in case you have any questions or want to know more about possible collaboration.

Best regards,

Lieke Ploeger.
