Faculty Authors Were Feted

042011Feature_BooksFaculty who had books published over the past year – between January 2010 and March 31, 2011 – were recently honored at a reception held by the University Libraries and the Office of the Provost. Dean Rosann Bazirjian noted, “At the beginning of this academic year, the libraries undertook a new initiative to identify, collect and promote the books written and edited by UNCG’s faculty. Through our faculty authors, our acquisitions staff, department chairs and University Relations, we learned of 43 books in all that were published in 2010 and 2011. The books we’ve now received come from 23 departments — from the schools of Business and Economics; Education; Human Environmental Sciences, Music, Theatre and Dance; Nursing; the Division of Continual Learning, and the College of Arts & Sciences.”
