It seems like just five minutes ago that Valerie was with us in WebEx meetings—so bright, so focused and generous.  It must have been difficult for you Kevin, during our CONSER BibFrame virtual meeting yesterday, as you must have known then.  There’s a great big hole in the community now—she’s SO missed.

Subject: Passing of Valerie Bross




With tremendous sadness, I need to let you know that Valerie Bross lost her long battle with cancer this morning. Valerie was the ERM/Continuing Resources Team Leader at the UCLA Cataloging & Metadata Center for the past 18 years and was an active member of the CONSER and NASIG communities. And while we will miss her greatly, we will always remember her as an energetic, thoughtful, and all-around wonderful colleague, mentor, and friend.
