Hi Leti

Many thanks for sharing this sad news. Hilton was a well-respected advocate over here too, and Joy and I enjoyed his colourful tour of Stellenbosch when we ran into him during one trip.

Please extend condolences to his family and friends on behalf of the Digital Curation Centre

Dear IR Community member,

it is with great regret that I have to inform you that our Open Access colleague, Hilton Gibson, passed away this morning after a struggle with pancreatic cancer.

Hilton was know for his irreplaceable contribution to the DSpace and Open Access community in South African and the African continent at large.
