About me

I'm Olaf Janssen, the GLAMwiki-coordinator for the Koninklijke Bibliotheek, the national library of the Netherlands (KB) in The Hague.

This means that I conceive, initiate and coordinate projects/activities to strengthen the connection between the (knowledge, collections, people and data of) KB and Wikimedia projects and communities.

See my expert page and more info on how & why KB collobarates on Wikimedia projects. (in Dutch)

My work

Activities for the KB

The KB is currently doing projects on :

My presentations & publications

Code and software

Off-work activities

Besides my professional activities for the KB I occasionally work on Wikimedia projects in my own time, most notably on Wikidata and Commons and to a lesser extent on Dutch Wikipedia.
