We said farewell to Jeremy Atkinson at our recent WHELF meeting.
Jeremy is retiring from his post as Director of Learning & Corporate Support Services at the University of Glamorgan.
Jeremy has been one of the chief pillars of WHELF for many years and was hugely influential in setting the direction of WHELF, working on the Higher Education Libraries in Partnership Project (HELP) in 2004. He chaired the new WHELF Development Group from its inception and was responsible for the action plan which saw WHELF making progress on a number of fronts. He was the driving force behind WHELF’s collaborative work on electronic books and electronic journals, culminating in the setting up of WHEEL – the Wales Higher Education Electronic Library. He also helped WHELF to build strong links with both SCONUL and JISC.
He will be very much missed by us all but we wish him well in his retirement.
