** Mary Axford, an active and integral part of the AcademicPKM website, passed away unexpectedly in her sleep in January 2015. She is missed daily. ***
Mary Axford was an arms control analyst at an engineering firm before getting her Masters degree in Library Science. Since 1988 she has been a librarian at Georgia Tech, where she is part of the Faculty Engagement Department which develops services for and performs outreach to faculty and graduate students. As a subject librarian she is the Library’s liaison to the schools of International Affairs, Psychology, and Public Policy. Her interest in library technology goes back to days of searching databases while in library school with acoustic couplers and print-only terminals. She was an early advocate of Gopher and the World Wide Web, and has organized three panels at ALA whose members were library technology gurus such as Marshall Breeding, Karen Schneider, and Stephen Abram.
