A second focus of my work is the technical improvement and expansion of the data basis of the literature search in Pollux. The actual work is done by our great colleagues from the IT department of the SuUB Bremen and from our project partner Gesis, while I am responsible for "quality control" and planning. Currently, for example, we are working on the integration of political science blogs. We will inform you about the results in the next newsletter.
I studied political science and history in Greifswald and then - with two stops in London and Mainz - completed my doctorate at the University of Oldenburg with a thesis on historical women's and gender studies. I then returned to my hometown of Berlin, where I completed my library postgraduate traineeship at the State Library and worked on two projects. Before moving to Bremen, I was a field librarian for political science, sociology, and economics at the Göttingen State and University Library for almost two years. More background on my professional career can be found on my ORCID profile.
I have been living in Hannover with my wife since the summer of 2022. When I'm not dealing with DFG forms, metadata, or license agreements, I like to use my time to cook, ride my bike, and - as befits a model librarian - read. I also have a soft spot for Great Britain and am interested in sustainability issues, which is why I am involved in the German Association for British Studies and the Green Library Network.
