    With sadness we report the sudden death of Liz Marley on 14 April 2021, at the age of 53. She was a member of the Indexing and Data Management team at the House of Commons Library and she became its first ever Thesaurus Editor.

    Among other commitments, she was a member of the Executive Committee of ISKO UK from 2015 to 2017 and a member of Taxonomies in the Public Sector (TiPS). Liz was a familiar face at Taxonomy Boot Camp London and ISKO UK conferences bringing common sense and a practical approach to the organisational side of the events, as well as humour and interesting conversations in the coffee breaks and social evenings.

    She was generous with her time, often helping fellow taxonomists at the weekends for fun, in spite of her frequent travels to Morocco to advise the Moroccan Parliament on developing their information services.

    We, at ISKO UK, wish to express our sincere condolences to Liz's family and friends.
