On 27 October the Information School gathered to celebrate the career of Professor Nigel Ford and confer on him the title of Emeritus Professor for his "most distinguished services and contribution to the Information School”.
He was also presented with a bound copy of Volume 70 Issue 6 of the Journal of Documentation 2014, which is a special issue festschrift in his honour. The issue is available online.
The festschrift was organised, in secret, by Professors Elaine Toms and Peter Willet and contains articles written by Nigel's current students, ex-students and colleagues. It even includes one for which Nigel is co-author - it's quite a feat to have kept this a secret!
Both these presentations represent very well deserved tributes to Nigel's outstanding career.
