The library's role in celebrating faculty publications
publishing, authorship, academic libraries, outreach
In recent years, MacEwan University Library has partnered with the university’s Office of Research Services to organize events that celebrate faculty authorship and creative output. What initially started as a biennial recognition of books and CDs by faculty members and staff has expanded to an annual celebration of various forms of dissemination, including peer-reviewed journal articles. Similar author recognition events have begun taking place at universities across the country that are led by libraries and follow a diverse range of formats. This session will highlight the motivations, benefits and challenges of organizing such events, and some of the creative ways that MacEwan's library has been able to leverage this event to promote a variety of services and initiatives that support research, scholarship, and creative activity happening on campus.
