On Thursday, September 30, 2021, the Friends of the Lehigh University Libraries hosted its 10th annual Harvest of Ideas reception in the Linderman Library Rotunda for faculty who published or edited a book or composition during the previous year. Judy Parr, president of the Friends of the Lehigh University Libraries, and Greg Reihman, vice provost for library and technology services, presided over the celebration.
The Faculty Authors collection represents a range of scholarly output, and this year's additions include monographs, textbooks, musical works, and more by faculty from all five of Lehigh's colleges. A copy of each book authored by Lehigh faculty is added to Special Collections and noted in the library catalog. Faculty-authored books are also on display in the Linderman Library reading room.

Introducing new author recognition website
Beginning in 2020, the Harvest of Ideas is also celebrated through a virtual recognition website. The site features the works of faculty who published or edited a book or composition during the previous year, alongside content like author interviews, images, and links to the books within the Lehigh Libraries catalog. This site will grow over the years to complement future in-person receptions, allowing the Lehigh community to explore and revisit the work of Lehigh authors.
