Celebration of Scholarship Honors Faculty and Student Research

Last week’s Celebration of Scholarship yielded an impressive turnout from both students and faculty, despite the weather’s best efforts to keep us all indoors. Equally impressive was the sheer volume of faculty publications on display from a range of disciplines. Director of Libraries Cathi Cardwell individually acknowledged all faculty members who contributed their work for the event (it was a long list).

Congratulations are also in order to those students who submitted papers for the 2013 Library Research Award. The judges were sincerely impressed by the caliber of the work demonstrated in these projects. Ultimately, though, there had to be a winner. Kassel Galaty was awarded first place for her paper titled “The Infected Man Has Been Althogether Lost Sight Of”: Dr. William Budd, the Importance of Epidemiology, and the Propagation of Germ Theory. Megan Cook took second place with her paper titled Physiological and Psychosocial Effects of the Inclusiveness of Physicians’ Language on Heterosexual and Queer College Women.

Lastly, three new READ posters were unveiled during the event. Faculty members honored with posters this year were Michael Flamm, Nancy Gamso, and Danielle Hamill.

Photos from the event are available in the library’s Flickr stream.
