Lotte Wilms, Digital Scholarship advisor, manages the KB Research Lab, DH in libraries advocate and always open for new initiatives. I hold a BA degree in English Language and Culture and an MA degree in Medieval Studies from Utrecht University and am currently a PhD student at Maastricht University. My research is focused on the role of academic libraries in the digital humanities.
Since working for the KB from 2008 onwards, I have held a number of positions, mostly related to digitisation and the reuse of digitised material. You could have met me while working for IMPACT, Europeana Newspapers or the projects that digitised our parliamentary papers or old printed books. Since 2013 I am active in the field of Digital Humanities and promoting this Lab and what we do as part of this setup all over the world.
My personal interests lie in community building and organisational issues around libraries and DH. How can we use our Lab to build a strong network of DH researchers using the material from the KB? And how should we set up our library organisations to support DH scholars and facilitate research?
