E-JASL: The Electronic Journal of Academic and Special Librarianship

In Memorium--Dan Foley

The present and former staff of E-JASL mourns the untimely death of Daniel Foley.

Dan died at the age of 58 from a massive heart attack in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on November 17, 2001 while teaching a class on MARC format to students at the University of Wisconsin--Milwaukee's School of Information Studies.

Students in the class administered CPR and the professional EMTs arrived quickly--but to no avail.

Dan, a native Milwaukeean, joined the University of Wisconsin--Milwaukee staff as the Nonbook Cataloger and Metadata Librarian over a year ago, after serving in a number of library positions in southern Louisiana, including Xavier University (New Orleans), Southeastern Louisiana University (Hammond), and the Energy and Environmental Information Resources Center at the University of Louisiana (Lafayette).

Dan's article, "Metadata in a Digital Special Library: the Energy and Environmental Information Resources Center in Lafayette, Louisiana" appeared in this e-journal's first refereed issue, October, 1999.

Dan will be missed by all who really knew him.
