- Digital Curator, Digitisation
- Digitisation, Digital Research
Dr Rossitza Atanassova
I am interested in the creation and exploitation of digitised content and the application of new research methods to digital collections. I contributed to two European Commission funded projects, SUCCEED (2013-14) and Europeana Newspapers (2012-15) and have represented the Library on the European Commission Member States Experts Group on Digitisation and Digital Preservation and on the Executive Board of the IMPACT Centre of Competence.
I have a research background in Classics, several years of experience as rare books librarian working with the Library’s 19th-century British printed collections and qualified as PRINCE 2 practitioner in 2013.
