COAR colleagues and the South African representatives, we all leant of the passing away of Hilton yesterday during our first day of the COAR2017 General Assembly in session here in Italy. We have lost the face of DSpace in Africa at a time when COAR is discussing the Alignment of Regional (Global) Repository Networks as a strategic mission and vision.

Let’s remember his passion for DSpace as we offer our thoughts, prayers and well-wishes to his family and friends.
