I am happy to annonce that I am the winner of this year’s German Libary Hi Tech award. The award is sponsored by Emerald Group Publishing Limited and recognises those who have made a significant contribution to the German Library community in the area of Technology.
I am very flattered by this and understand the award as not only an acknowledgment for my work, but for the work at the German National Library of Science and Technology (TIB) and the whole idea of DataCite.
The award will be presented next Monday (September 26th) at the welcome reception of the International Conference on Theory and Practice of Digital Libraries 2011 (TPDL) in Berlin. So I am looking forward to meet those of you who will attend the conference at the reception for a beer and a toast on DataCite.
