Barbara HirschmannETH ZurichHead, E-Publishing

At ETH Zurich, the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, we run a DSpace repository (Research Collection) which hosts open access publications and research data from ETH Zurich and additionally it serves as an institutional bibliography feeding publication data to institutional websites as well as the academic reporting system.

In my role as project manager when implementing the Research Collection, I have acquired extensive knowledge of DSpace’s functionalities and underlying system concept. I since transitioned into a new role as Head of E-Publishing at ETH Library where I oversee both business processes as well ongoing product development related to our DSpace repository.

At ETH Library we are committed to contributing to a sustainable future development of DSpace. I am looking forward to a next term in the DSpace Leadership Group in order to bring the perspective of one of the Europe’s leading universities in science and technology into this group.
