Head the libraries of Copenhagen University, Roskilde University, and the IT University of Copenhagen, and engage in active partnerships with Danish institutions of research and higher education. Furthermore, lead the national consortium of digital licenses as well as the library system of Royal Danish Library.

Library buildings have traditionally sent a strong qualitative signal of high-level professionalism. This is important to look at in a digital time, where buildings change compared to the development in the library setup. We need to continue sending a signal of quality and strong professionalism in quickly changing environments.
