Christian Zimmerman on the RePEc blog, has written a very nice and well-deserved recognition of Thomas Krichel!. As Christian says, Thomas is not just a RePEc volunteer; he is RePEc.
The blogpost also notes some of Thomas' colleagues and helpers in building RePEc, among them librarians, Féthy Mili, Economics librarian at the Université de Montréal, and José Manuel Barrueco Cruz, Economics librarian at the University of Valencia.
Krichel is a library school professor at Long Island University, New York, and was previously recognized on OA Librarian in the post Thomas Krichel: a man with ideas, and drive!.
Krichel is also one of the driving forces behind E-LIS, the Open Archive for Library and Information Science.
Congratulations for this well-deserved honour, Thomas!
