Farewell to Anne Clyde

Anne ClydeFriends, family and colleagues of Dr Laurel Anne Clyde will this morning gather in Iceland for the funeral of a great and tireless worker for school librarianship. An Australian by birth, Anne had taught at the University of Iceland for a number of years. As Professor in the faculty of Social Sciences she taught within the Department of Library and Information Science.

Dr Clyde had for many years run the website for the International Association of School Librarianship (IASL) and for the past two years had also been Chair of the Standing Section for School Libraries and Resource Centres for the International Federation of Library Associations (IFLA). Those of us who worked with Anne in these two organisations will miss her vitality and strength of purpose.

Anne was also well known to school librarians in the UK through her articles in journals such as The School Librarian – most recently in the Winter 2004 edition writing about "Blogs and the School Librarian". She also gave a paper last year on "Homosexuality in Children’s Literature" at the joint SLA/IASL conference in Dublin. Anne died suddenly on Sunday 18th September in Iceland. She will be greatly missed.
