This fund was set up in memory of our young colleague Louis-Mathieu Paquin who left a lasting impression at the University of Ottawa Library, Concordia University Libraries, and University of Alberta Libraries, as well as at theArchiepiscopal Seminary of Salzburg. The proceeds were used to sponsor a conference hackfest participant’s registration fee.
Louis-Mathieu enjoyed solving problems and had a fine mind for languages (French, English, German, and others) along with a multitude of computer languages and a talent for picking up musical instruments (music being simply another language). He was a remarkably reliable hard-working individual and every project he touched benefitted from his efforts.
