About

Rudolf Mumenthaler became professor for library science at HTW Chur in May 2012. Here he puts the focus in teaching and research on digital libraries, new trends in libraries, e-books and innovation management. From 1991 to 1997 he was assistant to the chair of European History at the University of Zurich. In 1996 he completed a PhD with a thesis on Swiss Scholars in Tsarist Russia. From 1997 to 2012 he worked at ETH-Bibliothek Zurich. There he was from 1997 to 2008 responsible for the Special Collections and put a strong focus on digitization and online access to the worthful collections (autographs, rare books, photographs). 2009 he took over a new job as head of the newly founded department innovation and marketing at ETH-Bibliothek. He introduced an innovation process for the library. A main task was to screen developments in information technology and libraries and to check which issues would be interesting for the library and its services. One of these issues are eReaders and how they could be used in libraries.
