I was greatly saddened to hear of the death of former National Library of Medicine Director Dr. Donald
Lindberg. Don was a genuine visionary and superb strategic leader who was responsible for enabling many of the key advances in both bio-informatics and public access to biomedical and health information as we
know them today.

He was also a great friend to and supporter of CNI. In 2014 it was my privilege to be able to present Dr. Lindberg with the Paul Evan Peters award at our Spring meeting.
