Celebrating Shane Godbolt

The latest issue of Focus on International Library and Information Work is dedicated to Shane Godbolt, who died last year, and who I remember with respect and affection from when we were both young information professionals. As the editorial says she was "someone who championed libraries sharing expertise and working together across borders" and the issue includes an article detailing her extensive work, and reprints of coauthored articles Promoting the Health of the People of Africa Building Library Partnerships for Better Health and Building a Partnership to Promote Health Information: A Case Study in Kenya.
The issue also includes a report on the conference Decolonising Library Collections and Practices: from Understanding to Impact. Go to
