 Mr Ingles’ work at CIHM/​Canadiana.org led to the filming and later digital preservation of Canada’s printed, published heritage of books, periodicals,​ and pamphlets. It also inspired his creation of the [[http://​peel.library.ualberta.ca/​aboutsite.html|Peel’s Prairie Provinces Website]] at the University of Alberta containing full digital texts of many thousands of Western Canadian books and printed ephemera. His wide-ranging research in western Canadian history and bibliography,​ library history, library automation and management, and the preservation of the printed record, yielded ten published books, fifty-seven articles and chapters in books, and almost 200 conference papers and public presentations. These cumulative achievements garnered twenty-nine professional awards and four medals, including the Tremaine Medal of the Bibliographical Society of Canada. Of these many awards, he was perhaps most proud of his election in 2001 as a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada – the first practicing librarian to be so honoured – and Red Crow College’s award in 2011 of the honorary degree of Blackfoot Eminent Scholar Kainai PhD, along with the Blackfoot title “Kaaahssinnin” (“Elder”). As a visionary, Ernie Ingles led and inspired many others to follow.\\ Mr Ingles’ work at CIHM/​Canadiana.org led to the filming and later digital preservation of Canada’s printed, published heritage of books, periodicals,​ and pamphlets.

 I was a Mentor at the first three cohorts of Northern Exposure to Leadership, which Ernie created and directed. It was a transformative experience for everyone involved, and its impact will be visible for a long time to come. In inspiring the 8Rs study as well, Ernie shone a light on human resources in the entire Canadian library sector. He always prompted librarians to consider themselves leaders of a big tent movement, and never just operators of institutions. Never forgotten.\\ I was a Mentor at the first three cohorts of Northern Exposure to Leadership, which Ernie created and directed.
