Indian Institute of Science died in an automobile accident last week (via private email). He was 51.
A brilliant information scientist, Dr. Rajashekhar had recent years spearheaded the Institutional Repositories
Movement in India as part of Open Access (OA) Movement. His articles on Digital Libraries and Metadata aggregation were both
educational and inspiring. In fact I was browsing through his article

published in "Turning Pages- Reflections in Info-times" when I got the
Rajashekar obtained his doctorate in library and information science
from University of Pune. Prior to joining NCSI, he had worked at National
Informatics Center (New Delhi), at the British Council Library, and as a
consultant to UNESCO on e-learning systems. He was the architect of the J-Gate
electronic journals management and access system popular in India.
We will miss him.
