Stefan Wiederkehr

Head of Special Collections and Digitization, Zentralbibliothek Zürich

Stefan Wiederkehr has been the head of Special Collections and Digitization at Zentralbibliothek Zürich since 2020. He is responsible for establishing and implementing the Citizen Science strategy of the library. He completed the LIBER Emerging Leaders Programme in 2017/2018.

He strongly advocates Open Science and says: “Trained as a historian I am eager to explore the potential of Citizen Science in the humanities. Libraries can provide infrastructure and support community building among citizens and scientists drawing on their core competences. Participating in the LIBER Citizen Science Working Group gives me the chance to share ideas with colleagues from many countries.”
