MPLA Webmaster Dan Chaney passed away on December 30. Dan was a dear friend to many of us in MPLA, and for some, our first contact with the organization. He loved MPLA and gave so much of himself to MPLA over his 20+ years of involvement.
Dan Chaney was an Associate Professor and Social Sciences Librarian at Oklahoma State University in Stillwater, Oklahoma. He was an enthusiastic Open Textbook advocate, and presented professionally on the subject, most recently at the Open Education Conference in Richmond, VA.
Funeral arrangements are being handled by Palmer Marler Funeral Home, 5106 N. Washington, Stillwater, OK, with a memorial service on Friday, January 6, at 3:00 p.m. Another service will be scheduled in Aurora, Illinois, next week.
