It is with heavy heart that I pass along word of Rob Kling's death. 
Many of us on air-l knew him, and most, perhaps all, of us knew his 
work. Rob was one of the keynote speakers at the first AoIR 
conference at Kansas University. His work and his spirit touched many 
and he will be greatly missed. My condolences to his family, his 
friends and his colleagues. I join you in mourning.

The following was posted on the web site of the School of Library and 
Information Science at Indiana University today:

Rob Kling , Professor of Information Systems and Information Science 
at the Indiana School of Library and Information Science and Adjunct 
Professor of Computer Science at IU, passed away unexpectedly 
Thursday morning in the pre-dawn hours of May 15th.  He was 59 years 
old.

Rob's SLIS friends and colleagues mourn his loss, and extend our 
sympathy to his wife, professor Mitzi Lewison. Arrangements are 
pending and we will post more information when it is available. 

The url for that site is

more information will be posted soon.

Peace,
Steve Jones
