For Immediate Release

STILLWATER -The Library is recognizing OSU authors and artists during 2012 Research Week on Feb. 21, 2012. The Celebrating Books by OSU Authors will be held from 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. in the Anne Morris Greenwood Reading Room.

The public is invited to a reception to meet the authors and discuss their work and publication process. Selections of the honorees’ work will be available to purchase.

Each spring, the OSU Library honors OSU employees and students who have authored, co-authored or edited a book or published a major creative work such as musical composition, art exhibit catalog or audio recording in the past two years.

“Publishing a book or a creative work of this volume shows tremendous dedication. We feel honored each year to see copies of the publications added to the OSU Libraries,” said Sheila Johnson, Dean of Libraries. “Celebrating Books allows us to honor those who accomplish this outstanding achievement.”

The purpose of Celebrating Books by OSU Authors is to recognize and honor these individuals' achievements, encourage academic dialogue and ensure that works by OSU authors are available to the University community by adding these pieces to the OSU Library's collection.
