Short Bio

I'm a librarian and archivist turned web developer some 20 years ago when the web came to reality. I'm now Director of Web services at BAnQ and I have a growing interest in LOD.

Interest in LODLAM

Meet LODLAM members and exchange ideas and perhaps find common projets to work on


Library, Archive, Government (incl National and State libraries and archives)

Linked Open Data Projects

My first project (still officially unreleased) revolves around the RFN project Reseau Francophone Numerique ( We wanted to expose the data of this search engine as LOD. We built based on Oracle Semantic technology and a JENA SPARQL endpoint. The complete the set we also set up an OAI-PMH server on the same dataset.

BAnQ is also closely related to the Quebec government initiative on Open Data.
