Celebrating Books by OSU Authors-Feb. 18

Book Authors to be Honored for Research Week 2013

If you have authored, co-authored or edited a book or published a major creative work in 2011 or 2012, the Library wants to honor you at a Research Week reception.

Each spring, the Library honors OSU employees who have produced a book or a major creative work in the past two years. Our goal is to recognize and honor the achievements of the many talented and creative people we have at OSU. In order to recognize these works, we need to identify the faculty and staff who have produced them. If you know a recent book author, please forward their names or ask them to complete the entry form.

The 2013 Celebrating Books by OSU Authors reception will be Monday, Feb. 18 from 11:30 am-1:30 pm in the Anne Morris Greenwood Reading Room of the Edmon Low Library.
