Chapter Summary

Maarten Kuitenbrouwer adapted his text by consulting and referring to relevant publications from 2001-2007 and giving a place in the last chapter to developments in KITLV up to 2007. KNAW-imposed priorities led to several organizational changes within KITLV. The Library Department and the Department of Archives & Images were merged in 2006 to become the Department of Collections, while the Department of Caribbean Studies was also divided up according to function: one part to Collections, one part to KITLV Press. In 2010 KITLV Press was also reorganized, with the objective that it would become 'leaner and meaner'; during these years KITLV Press maintained its status as a productive publisher of high-quality texts. For KITLV there is an important place reserved within the Leiden Institute of Global and Area Studies (LIGA), which is in the process of being formed.
