Uldis Zariņš is a librarian by education and profession, a musician at heart and a ponderer by calling. Currently he is the Head of Strategic Development at the National Library of Latvia, but his professional career includes such diverse entries as PR specialist, market researcher, journalist, editor, internet marketer, project manager and head of business development and IT.
Uldis is an accidental copyright expert in the field of libraries and copyright, and in this capacity a member of IFLA Committee on Copyright and other Legal Matters and EBLIDA Expert Group on Information Law. He is vice-president of the Latvian Library Association. And, as unlikely as it sounds, considers the job of librarian to be absolutely thrilling and exciting. Although he really loves his job at the Castle of Light, the new building of the National Library, he still dreams of being a full-time musician some day.
