Our customers and the rapid move of development in libraries today, I also love being part of a company which works on the edge of innovation thus facilitating development for the entire sector.

What do you find most exciting about the future of the library?

That more and more students are using the library services and that the transition from print on physical shelves to almost unlimited electronic content available wherever you are, makes the libraries blossom and thrive.

Who is your favorite author?

Do you have a favorite library? If so, what is it?

This is the most difficult question of all as I see so many wonderful libraries. But no matter how beautiful the buildings and how well appointed the reading areas are, I think what makes a lasting impression is always the people working there, the visions and the hard work of making straining budgets go that little extra to provide a service which unobtrusively supports the quality of the entire institution.
