Position Conservatrice des archives, responsable de diffusion numérique des collections
Organisation Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec
Motivation statement

I work for over 30 years in an art museum which is also a documentary environment (library, rare books, documentation center, private archives, etc.) One of my concerns in my work has always to make these specialized resources available to the greatest number of users, both on site and online. I have a very broad vision of documentary resources by my profile (documentation, library. art history, museology) and my interests (digital culture, copyright, data). Over the past decade, I have seen the benefits of open data practices, open access, Wiki projects, etc. I think that my dynamism and my involvement in the documentary world of museums and libraries can be an asset for IFLA. I apply because I think that I support reflections, ideas by having a specialized library profile but also transversal disciplinary approaches (GLAM projects, museums).
