Eugenia Ryner, Library Director of the FBI Library, has retired after over 15 years with the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Eugenia was a strong supporter of WCJLN, presenting a paper in Australia on computer-generated law enforcement training. She will miss her colleagues in the international community, but hopes everyone will keep in touch. Her home email is. She and Steve (an unofficial WCJLN member and accompanying spouse) will continue to live in Woodbridge, Virginia.
"It is with deep regret that I advise that Janet Smith, Information Manager with the Australian Institute of Criminology, died in Canberra on 24 January 2011. She had been suffering from breast cancer. Janet joined the Institute in 2003 and brought energy and a fresh vision to the Library's Work and ensured the Institute's involvement with a number of important information networks. Over the years the subscribers of Crimnet have been well aware of Janet's very considerable contribution to the network and internationally she ensured that the Institute continued to be a key contributor to the World Criminal Justice Library Network (WCJLN).
People from many walks of life, from within Canberra, elsewhere in Australia and beyond our shores, mourn the passing of Janet Smith. We grieve with her family at their loss and we remember a warm, caring, and intelligent person who enriched many lives."
