Vale Harold Weir

"Harold Weir, Parliamentary Librarian from 1978 to 1982 and distinguished staff member prior to his appointment, passed away in late August. He made a very considerable contribution to the establishment of the library's research services, particularly the establishment of high-quality service and was instrumental in much of the early automation, including the implementation of word processing, connection to external databases and development of staff skills. His contribution lives on through the successful Bills digest service, the research service itself and the use of new information technologies."' inCite, November 2007, volume 28, issue 11, page 41
