Sylvia Van Peteghem

Chief Librarian of the Ghent University Library

Sylvia Van Peteghem has been working in the iconic Ghent University Book Tower (Boekentoren) since 1983. She started in the ephemera-collection of the Special Collections Department and got fascinated with the 19th Century collection. In October 2000, she was appointed as Chief Librarian of the Ghent University Library.

The library is part of the research department of the University of Ghent and its mission is facilitating open knowledge creation. Open Access is an important item for the library team. In 2007 the university became a partner of the Google Book Search Program. This means 200,000 copyright free books are digitized and free online. Sylvia will explain how important this work is for the University, the academic community and the wider public as a whole. They are no strangers to Github, RDF and semantic web and will explain how their project is linked to the Drupal passion.
