2019 Harvest of Ideas Faculty Authors Reception

On Monday, September 16, 2019, the Friends of the Lehigh University Libraries hosted its 8th annual Harvest of Ideas reception in the Linderman Library Rotunda for faculty who published or edited a book or composition during the previous year. Melody Weisman, president of the Friends of the Lehigh University Libraries, Carrie Baldwin-SoRelle, social sciences and scholarly communications librarian, Bruce Taggart, vice provost for library and technology services, and Boaz Nadav-Manes, university librarian, presided over the celebration. Mark Norell ’19, a Mechanical Engineering major, provided musical entertainment.

This year’s additions to the faculty scholarship collection reflect the diversity of Lehigh’s scholarly output, including not only monographs and conference proceedings, but also translations, musical scores, and the collection’s first cookbook. 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.
