Hogeschool van AmsterdamAt the Faculty of Education I served as an all-round worker, but specialized myself in the software suite (ADLIB) used for the catalogue and all administration.At the Faculty of Healthcare I continued working on ADLIB, and made a Hogeschool-specific version of the software. Besides that I also specialized myself in information retrieval (over the Internet).When working at the central office as ADLIB applications manager I was fixing problems, finetuning parts & doing maintainance on the various versions used at the different locations of the Hogeschool van Amsterdam. Keeping the central (online) database up-to-date was also part of my job. And, last but not least, I was the helpdesk for the libraries of the Hogeschool van Amsterdam, officially only for ADLIB but usually also for all kinds of other software and Internet matters.The Representative Advisory Council of the Hogeschool has to approve all the major decisions the School Board is taking. I participated 2 years in the Council as a student member.
