Obituary: Mr. Antonio Santos - Director, National Library of Philippines

National Library of Philippines announced with deep sorrow the passing of its Director Antonio Santos on October 22, 2015 while on a business trip to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. It was caused by a heart attack.

He had been the Director of the National Library of the Philippines for almost 4 years, and was the Law Librarian at the University of the Philippines for more than 30 years.

During his carrier as Director, Mr. Santos had attended the CDNLAO Meeting every year and had always played a significant part in the cooperation between National Libraries in the Asia and Oceania region. In the past, CDNLAO Newsletter has reported his strenuous efforts in various affairs such as library education and the INELI-ASEAN Project.

All of us within the CDNLAO convey our deepest sympathies to the National Library of the Philippines staff, Philippines Library Association colleagues, and his family.
