Mirjam Raaphorst, Coordinator Dataservices at the KB.
Originally I’m an historian (I hold a MA degree in medieval history from the Radboud University of Nijmegen) but have been working for more than 10 years in the most interesting world of preservation, digitization and making digitized heritage findable and accessible. I worked at Metamorfoze (Netherlands' national program for the preservation of paper heritage), geheugen.delpher.nl (website with Online heritage collections) and DBNL (Digital Library of Dutch Language and Literature). Now, as coordinator dataservices, I focus on making the immense digital collections of the KB accessible and usable for research. I work on projects like tools-to-data, corpusbuilder and a text and datamining space.
