Vale Norman Horrocks

ALIA is saddened to inform members and the library community of the death of Norman Horrocks, professor emeritus, School of Information Management, Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, who died peacefully during the night 14 October.

In 2006, Norman was named an Officer of the Order of Canada in recognition of his lifetime devotion to library and information science and was the only person to have been elected to Honorary Membership in the three national library associations, Canadian, British, and American. Norman was very proud of his membership of four national library associations, those of Canada, UK, USA and Australia and his links with colleagues in those countries were highly valued. His loss will be felt by many in the countries where he made his home at various times and throughout the world.
