Me and my girlfriend Lucia in South Tyrol, Italy
I'm Matthias Kissler from Peine, Germany. I work at the Braunschweig University Library as a part of the Open Access and Publication Services team.
In our team, we maintain and develop our institutional repository Braunschweig Digital Library. We handle everything from publications of our scientists to digitized books from our library. We also manage the institutional publication funds for open access publications at our university and advise scientists about publishing their works open access. Therefore, it is important for me to expand my knowledge about Creative Commons because the licenses play a pivotal part in the open access universe.

When I'm not working, I love to play games (online, offline, computer and board) and go hiking with my girlfriend.
