It is with great regret and sorrow that I inform you that Gustavo Galindo 
passed away suddenly yesterday.  Gustavo was the Site Manager for 
Bookshare.org, and was the foundation of our Bookshare.org team.  He was 
involved in the rapid growth of our collection over the last four years 
through personally approving each book being added.  Gustavo was fierce in 
his dedication to serving people with print impairments while getting it 
right, by taking our commitments to publishers and authors seriously.  He 
had a formidable intellect, and his insights, understanding and sense of 
humor will be sorely missed by our team.



We can honor Gustavo's commitment to access and books by doing our best to 
bring more books to more people with print disabilities around the world.
