Judith Agus, former College Librarian at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama (RWCMD), sadly passed away on Tuesday 14th February 2017. Judith retired from RWCMD in December 2014 and was a greatly respected and dedicated librarian and a really valued member of WHELF. She will be sadly missed.
The following information from the website of the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama highlights the contribution that Judith made to the profession:
“Judith was the College’s Librarian from December 1995 to December 2014 and during that time made a significant number of changes and improvements to the Library, professionalising resources and transforming it into the much-valued service it is today.
Forward thinking, Judith significantly raised awareness of the importance of Library services within the HE and Peer Group; she was a great ambassador for the College and a much-respected colleague.
Judith was awarded a President’s Medal at the Graduation Ceremony in July 2014 in recognition of her long and distinguished service to the College. She took a special interest in our students’ personal development and continued to follow with interest the careers of our graduates even after her retirement
Our thoughts are with Judith’s family at this very sad time” (http://blog.rwcmd.ac.uk/2017/02/15/in-memory-of-judith-agus/)
