Vale ~ Helen Hoffmann

Our colleague Helen Hoffmann passed away on 15 October. Helen was a terrific contributor to ALIA, particularly as ALIA representative on the Australian Committee on Cataloguing (ACOC) from 1981 to 2003. An ALIA silver pin recipient in 2004, Helen was active in the Victorian Group as well. She joined La Trobe University Library in 1969 and made a major contribution to collection growth and access. She was Chief Cataloguer at La Trobe from 1977 until she retired in 2003. Many ALIA members benefited from Helen's advice and thoughts. She contributed to her profession through many committees, conference papers, journal articles and reports. We will all miss her.
