Faculty, staff scholarly and creative work to be showcased on Web

The Friends of the University Libraries have extended the deadline for nominations to recognize the scholarly and creative achievements of faculty and staff to Oct. 10.

The Friends Board decided to do something a little different this year. Rather than host the honorees at a reception, the board will post their names and accomplishments on the University Web site. “We believe that this information will be viewed by prospective undergraduate and graduate students, colleagues at other universities, book editors and researchers who are looking for scholars with specific expertise, and other people who are curious about what university faculty and staff are studying these days,” the board says.
