On Thursday, September 17, 2018, the Friends of the Lehigh University Libraries hosted its 7th annual Harvest of Ideas reception in the Linderman Library Bayer Galleria 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, and Bruce Taggart, vice provost for library and technology services, presided over the celebration. Student musicians from the Lehigh University Jazz Combo provided musical entertainment.
The collection of faculty scholarship, representing all of Lehigh’s colleges, covers an impressive time span from pre-Imperial China to the most recent emerging technologies for underground hazard detection. A copy of each book authored by Lehigh faculty is added to Special Collections and noted in the library catalog.
