1.            Author Recognition Reception (attachment) – Dean VanOrsdel

Hello, everyone,

Over the next two weeks the Libraries will be gathering citation information from faculty and staff who published books, articles, creative works, etc., during 2009.  Authors will be invited to the library's annual Author Recognition Reception on Thursday,  March 18, 2010, 4-6:30 P.M.  The citations will be listed in a booklet that is distributed to contributing faculty and to deans after the reception.  Listings are by college or administrative unit.  The intent is to recognize and honor our colleagues who created these scholarly and creative works, but a collateral benefit is that deans and unit heads get a list of the published work  of their faculty and staff.

I'm writing to ask your help in soliciting citations from your people.  Our liaison librarians are communicating directly with the academic units, but I believe a message of encouragement from you would add some heft to our appeals. 

Many thanks for your help.


2.            Program Flyer Brochures (attachments: sample, letter) – Nick Viau

Institutional Marketing is in the process of updating the Program Flyer brochures in some exciting ways.  Not only will the new flyers be more sustainable, they will have an updated look, be easier for departments to tweak, and be easier to order quickly.  Please see the attached letter and sample.
