A tribute to Anton Mangstl

At the end of March 2011, the Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations (FAO) says goodbye to one of its leaders in information management, Dr. Anton Mangstl, Director of the Office of Knowledge Exchange, Research and Extension (OEhttp://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gifK) and past IAALD Board member.

Dr. Mangstl moved FAO’s information function from one of a traditional library and indexing services to one of information management and document availability. He has moved information management beyond libraries with labor intensive processes to providing access to housed documents by taking FAO's documents directly to the user while reducing the labor required to provide the access and service.
