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.
