One of the major highlights of the Online Conference in memory of AIMS Cameroon’s Academic Director late Prof. Marco Andrea Garuti on August 21st, 2021 was the announcement by the Centre President that the Library will henceforth carry the departed collaborator’s name.

“The AIMS Cameroon Library, the current and the future one in the new premises whose construction is to start anytime from now, will be named the PROFESSOR MARCO ANDREA GARUTI LIBRARY,” revealed Prof. Dr. Mama Foupouagnigni who also stated that Prof. Marco had left a strong legacy in 50 months of work at AIMS and that AIMS Cameroon and the AIMS Global Network were committed to keeping his memory alive.

Prof. Dr. Mama recalled how he started appreciating Prof. Marco’s human qualities, competence, commitment and love for the development of mathematical sciences in Africa. As an example, he mentioned how at his request Prof. Marco prefinanced books for the library costing about 750 euros, transporting the heavy package from Roma to Limbe, before he was reimbursed by the International Mathematical Union (IMU) Volunteer Lecturer Program.

AIMS Cameroon’s library is today equipped with a wide variety of publications that enable the students to search further, not only for more information to complete their daily assignments but also to explore published research that could guide them in their future roles as problem solvers in Africa.
