Books of honor
Promoted and newly tenured faculty were honored Nov. 15 with a reception in the Grand Gallery of Grainger Engineering Library Information Center and a book plating, sponsored by Provost Richard Herman and University Librarian Paula Kaufman. Participating faculty members selected books, either extant volumes or new additions to the university’s collections, for embossing with commemorative bookplates in their honor. Eighty-two faculty members participated, and 44 books were added to the university’s holdings. This was the third year for the program. Faculty members participating in the bookplating program were asked to choose books that had personal significance and to explain their rationale in 50 words or less. Selections ranged from scholarly works to Dr. Seuss’ "Oh, the Places You’ll Go." The books will be on display in the central corridor of the main library through December.
