Portrait of Marco De Niet

Marco De Niet

Members Council Member
MC Term: January 2016 - December 2020
Division Manager Research & Educational Services / Vice-director Leiden University Library Netherlands Library

In September 2017 I moved to Leiden University Libraries (UBL), to become responsible for all physical and digital services provided by the library to the academic community and beyond. Before UBL I was director at the DEN Foundation, the Dutch knowledge institute for digitisation in the cultural sector. In that capacity, I was a driving force behind crossdomain collaboration and statistical and impact research on digital heritage. I have been involved with Europeana from the very beginning, including collaborations preceding Europeana, when working at the KB, the national library of the Netherlands until 2004.
