Thank you for joining us at the National Library

Thank you for joining us at the KB, National Library on November 21!

It was great to welcome you all at the National Library of the Netherlands in The Hague.

We’ve had an exclusive peek into the fascinating world of the KB and learned more about how the KB has made the transition to a data informed organization.

Amazing visit

The KB, our host, ensures the Dutch library collection remains visible, useful and sustainable.

Their ambition to be a data informed organization has led them to adjust their organizational processes and invest in a new data warehouse in close collaboration with data management specialist Type2Solutions.

We look back at an amazing visit to the KB, including a tram ride to the location, a guided tour inside the KB, a look at their Highlights Exhibition and an exquisite dinner at the Tram Remise.

We hope to see you again soon & a special thanks to the National Library and the Tram Remise!

The KB uses the Type2Solutions data migration platform and data quality monitor for the structured loading of datasets from different source systems into the national data warehouse and the automatic validation of this data. Two experienced T2S data analysts, Hans Pannekoek and Tim van Tongeren, guided the project. 

Tim van Tongeren presented the project as well as our 5-step approach for data management:
