THE NAME Elizabeth Watson will forever be in focus at the University of the West Indies (UWI), Cave Hill.

She is credited with developing the largest audio-visual collection between 1979 and 2008 when she was librarian of the Learning Resource Centre. The room, which houses the 20 000 items, was officially named the Elizabeth Watson Audiovisual Unit at a ceremony at UWI this morning. 

Watson, who retired on January 31 as professor and campus librarian, is the latest of UWI’s founding members and stalwarts to be honoured. She joined the staff at the university on August 1, 1968 as a library clerk. (YB)
