Since 2006, the Provost’s Office and University Libraries have recognized and celebrated faculty who achieve tenure and/or promotion. with each honoree selecting a book for the library’s collection. The book is then bookplated to commemorate her or his achievement. Faculty members choose a book with special meaning to them and write a brief statement about why they selected that book. This year’s honorees enjoyed a late September celebration reception in Cone Ballroom.
