Vale Dr Sigrid McCausland

2 Dec 2016

On 30 November, we were saddened to learn of the passing of much-loved and respected PARBICA member Dr Sigrid McCausland.

Sigrid was a greatly valued leader in the archives and records management profession in Australia, having served as the University Archivist at both the University of Technology Sydney and The Australian National University. She has also been instrumental in the success of the archives and records management programs at Charles Sturt University.

PARBICA members remembered Sigrid through moving tributes on our Facebook page, finding her “a mentor and inspiration” and "a great advocate and a great educator". She is fondly remembered by many for her generosity in sharing her knowledge during PARBICA conferences, as well as her warmth and intelligence.

A great loss to our PARBICA community, and our thoughts and best wishes are with her family.
