Internal and public version

In the Who's Who, a strict distinction is made between the internet version, which is visible to all users, and the intranet version, which requires logging in.
The internet version of the Who's Who directory is recognizable by the blue internet header:

At the top right of the screen you will find "intranet version".  If you click this, you will be taken to the intranet version of the Who's Who directory, recognizable by the orange header:

The intranet version shows more details than the internet version. For more information, see Who's Who – information and modifications.


Dutch and English version

The Who's Who directory is available in English as well as in Dutch. At the top right of the screen, you will find the link "Nederlandse versie".  If you click this, you will be taken to the Dutch version of Who’s Who.
