URGENT - Monday 9 July public lecture CANCELLED
Monday 9 July 2012
The University Library is sorry to announce that today's public lecture by Ingrid Parent, President of the International Federation of Library Associations (IFLA), has been cancelled.
Ms Parent was called home to Canada yesterday (Sunday) when a close relative became gravely ill.
She was very disappointed about having to cancel her speaking commitments in Melbourne and Canberra and feels distressed at having to let down her colleagues.
"We thank everybody who registered for today's Information Futures Forum with Ingrid Parent, and we hope you will understand this cancellation was unavoidable," said Jenny Ellis, Acting University Librarian at the University of Melbourne.
"Our heartfelt sympathies go to Ingrid and her family."
