Karin originally joined Nationalmuseum to ameliorate digital documentation and to streamline digitization routines. A major goal of documentation and digitization was soon to make the astonishing collection more accessible to the public. Karin is responsible for Nationalmuseum’s cooperation with Europeana and initiated several collaborations with Open Data initiatives such as Wikidata. Through pilot projects and collaborative initiatives, she minimized internal doubts and moved the institution towards a more open understanding of digital access to cultural heritage. Nationalmuseum effectuated an OpenGlam policy in October 2016 and provides large parts of the digitized collections through collaboration with Wikimedia Sweden.
Karin has a background as historian and is an elected member of the Europeana Members Council.
