Recent Event: Celebration of Faculty Scholarship

On Wednesday, March 26, the library held its annual Celebration of Faculty Scholarship. Each year at this event, we honor the publishing efforts of the faculties of Loyola College and College of Notre Dame of Maryland with a reception and an exhibit of the books and journal articles they published.

In addition, this year four faculty spoke about the publishing process: Dr. R. Trent Pomplun, Assistant Professor of Theology, Loyola College; Sr. Eileen Eppig, Associate Professor of Religious Studies, College of Notre Dame; Dr. Elizabeth Schmidt, Professor of History, Loyola College; and Dr. Alison Dray-Novey, Professor of History, College of Notre Dame. They discussed a variety of issues surrounding publishing, including the differences between academic and trade publishing, the travails of soliciting essays for reference works, the process of actually gathering information for a book, and much more. Their contributions to the Celebration were much appreciated, and brought a new level of engagement and excitement to the event. Below are just a few pictures of the event - we hope to have the rest posted to the website in the near future.
