Fȇted at a September 27 reception sponsored by the Office of the Provost and the University Libraries, honorees include tenured faculty and promoted academic professional and clinical faculty.
Dr. Dana Dunn, provost and executive vice chancellor, Dr. Martin Halbert, dean of the University Libraries, and Dr. Franklin D. Gilliam, Jr., chancellor, spoke spoke during the event in the Virginia Dare Room.
In a tradition begun in 2006, honorees were given the opportunity to select a book, DVD, or music CD that has special meaning to them for the University Libraries collection. A book plate was applied to each new piece for the collection. For those who accepted the offer of a photograph with their selection, READ posters were created.
A display of photographs of the faculty and their selections are now on view near the Reference desk on the main floor of Jackson Library.
