It is with great pleasure that we can announce Lizzy Jongma as the keynote speaker for DPASSH 2017. Lizzy has a wealth of experience working with cultural heritage data and will no doubt provide a unique and insightful perspective on the challenges and opportunities of long-term digital preservation.
Lizzy studied History at the University of Nijmegen (Netherlands) and specialized in digitization, automation of structured metadata, innovation in collection presentations and digital research. She currently works as Senior ICT project manager for the Dutch Network for War Resources WWII.
As ICT project manager she bridges the worlds of collections, research and ICT innovations. The Network of Dutch War Resources is a national network of heritage Institutions with WWII related collections. The goal of the network is to develop digital services, products and strategies to link collections and make the resources of 200+ institutions digitally available, interoperable and (re-)usable.
Before the launch of the Network (June 2016) Lizzy worked at the Rijksmuseum Amsterdam as Data Manager in the Research Services Department (2011-2016). She worked on digitally opening up the collections of the Rijksmuseum resulting in the Rijksmueum API, Public Domain collection and Rijksstudio. She also worked on digitzation of conservation research and the development of digital Annotation tools.
