Librarian, Innovator, change instigator - from a background in Academic libraries, spearheading the move to e-resources, I recognized the need for better discovery and moved to work for CSA (later ProQuest) on the development of the first discovery service. For the next ten years I worked with along with customer Libraries in Europe and the Middle East developing and improving library technology, discovery and e-resource management. One of the biggest mindsets, and thus required tools, changes was from managing single item print books to huge collections of mixed e-content. Now this change is coming also for print collections and I love working with the best and the brightest European libraries spearheading this new technology.
