This article is about my teacher Nail Bayraktar, one of the leading names of Turkish Librarianship. It is a short expression of his memory in me from my first years as a librarian in the Ataturk Library until his death.. For him, the librarian profession was a love. He has more labor on me than we can never pay. Nail Bayraktar lived as a person who reads, thinks and writes a lot until his last breath. I believe that he will always live with his works and exemplary lifestyle. I will always remember my dear teacher with respect, love and longing.
