I can't cook. Who cares?

The life and times of Thomas Krichel

I'm a Saarland-born digital librarian based in Novosibirsk and New York City. I work in the area of digital libraries for scholarly communication. My main claim to fame is the creation of the RePEc digital library for economics in the 1990s. I also started some of RePEc’s services. Among them is the “NEP: New Economics Papers” service. In 2017, I lauched the “bims: Biomed news” service. It’s a clone of NEP for PubMed.

I’m also working on a grant-funded project to support ArchEc, a project I created to archive RePEc.

I do consultancy.

Between January 2001 and August 2012, I taught in the Palmer School of Library and Information Science at Long Island University. Between 2005 and 2010 I supervised students in the Faculty of Information Technology of Novosibirsk State University. Between February 1993 and September 2000 I was a lecturer in the Department of Economics at the University of Surrey.
