Faculty discuss publications on display at the 2014 Celebration.

On Wednesday, March 25, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., Rutgers University Libraries will host the opening reception to our 12th annual Celebration of Recently Published Faculty Authors exhibition.  This exhibition, which honors faculty from Rutgers-New Brunswick and Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences who have published in the last year, will run in the lobby of Alexander Library through the end of April.

Richard L. Edwards, executive vice president of academic affairs and chancellor of Rutgers University-New Brunswick, and Jeanne E. Boyle, interim vice president for information services and university librarian, will greet all participants at the opening reception.

All faculty are encouraged to participate by submitting a copy of their work(s) published in 2014 for use in the exhibition.  We hope that they will also donate that copy of their work for our permanent library collections.  Gifts will be recognized as such at the event and in the exhibition catalog, but materials may also be loaned for return after the exhibition’s conclusion.  All books (monographs, textbooks, ebooks, etc.) should be sent as early as possible to: ­

Matt Badessa
University Libraries Central Administration
Alexander Library
169 College Avenue
New Brunswick, NJ 08901

To ensure that all participants are represented appropriately in the catalog, we recommend that faculty members include a brief, one-paragraph summary of each submission.  Only submissions received by Monday, March 2 will be included in this year’s exhibition.

If a faculty member has already donated a copy of their recent publication to the Libraries, or if the publication is already part of the collections, they should contact Matt Badessa to arrange for their contribution to be recognized in the exhibition. 

The Libraries are delighted to sponsor this event each year to call attention to the scholarship of our distinguished faculty and to celebrate their accomplishments.  All faculty are invited to attend the reception whether or not they will have a publication featured in the exhibition. Attendees may RSVP by calling 848-932-7505 or emailing
