Eric Cooper

We are very sad to pass on the news that Eric Cooper died last night, at the age of 97. Some of you will remember him as he was a tremendous influence from the early days of IAML, both in the UK and
internationally, particularly in the fields of public libraries and sound recordings. You may like to read IAML President Pia Shekter’s piece about him on the international IAML website, here.
