red. prof. dr. Maja Žumer

Dr. Maja Žumer is Professor of Information Science at University of Ljubljana (Slovenia). After completing her degree in mathematics, she held several positions as computer programmer and systems analyst, where she was also involved in the design, development and implementation of information retrieval systems. Her M.L.S. degree from Kent State University (USA) in 1993 was a turning point in her career: she became first a systems librarian, then Head of Research and Development Department at the National and University Library in Ljubljana. After completing her PhD in information science in 1999 (University of Zagreb, Croatia), she joined the faculty of Department of Library and Information Science and Book Studies at University of Ljubljana.

Her research interests include design and evaluation of information retrieval systems, end-user interfaces, usability, and, recently, conceptual modelling. She was member of IFLA FRBR Review Group and co-chair of FRSAD Woking Group and has published extensively on the topic. As a member of the Consolidation Editorial Group she is co-author of IFLA LRM (with Pat Riva and Patrick LeBoeuf). From 2017 to 2019 she was member of IFLA Professional Committee and Governing Board.
