Faculty Authors Ceremony
2 p.m. April 14

Manderino Gallery of Fine Art
Third floor, Manderino Library

A ceremony at Manderino Library will recognize Cal U faculty members who have published books during the past five years.

“For a while now the library has wanted a collection of works by faculty authors, so that’s what we’re doing,” said Monica Ruane Rogers, assistant professor and research and instruction librarian.

“Scholarship is important in academia and this ceremony is a way to showcase that.”

There is a “massive” list of faculty authors and their book titles in the Special Collections area of the fourth floor of the library, said Bill Denny, assistant professor and distance learning/government documents librarian, and many past and current faculty members have published book chapters and articles in journals and encyclopedias.

“We chose this five-year time frame just to have a place to start, since we’ve never done this before,” he said. “Perhaps next year we will open it up to anyone on campus who has published a book.”

Accompanying the books on display at the ceremony will be framed pieces of artwork created by faculty members Maggy Aston, R. Scott Lloyd and Todd Pinkham, all of the Department of Art and Design.

The Office of Academic Affairs and Manderino Library are sponsoring the ceremony.  Each of the faculty honorees will receive a certificate, and special bookplates will be placed on their books in the library’s permanent collection.

Any faculty member who has published a book is encouraged to inform the library staff.
