Dear reader,

I started this blog to write about digital preservation topics and called it Digital Preservation Seeds, because – like ideas – seeds can go anywhere and start germinating, or not …

Since 2005 I am working for the KB National Library of the Netherlands and I advice the management team on various topics related to the preservation and long-term accessibility of our digital collections: from organizational and procedural aspects, to preservation policies and certification. I’m active in national and international initiatives and I’m chair of the Board of Directors of the Open Preservation Foundation.

I’m very proud to have received the DPC Fellowship Award in 2018 for my contributions to digital preservation.I hope that this blog will be of interest to you and if you want to contact me, please do so via the comments box below. Please provide then your name and e-mail address to make it possible for me to answer you swiftly. Your comment, name and e-mail address will not be shared with anyone!

Kind regards,
