Libraries exhibit highlights faculty's favorite books

For the past eight years, the University Libraries and Penn State's Office of the Provost have jointly sponsored an initiative to recognize recently tenured and promoted Penn State faculty. Through the program, each newly tenured or promoted faculty is asked to select a book for the University Libraries’ collection that receives a bookplate commemorating the achievement.

Books selected and personal statements about the significance of the books are featured in an exhibit, “Honoring Recently Promoted and Tenured Penn State Faculty,” on display in the Diversity Studies Room, 109 Pattee Library, Oct. 25 to Dec. 31.

More about the program and a full list of past year’s honorees and submissions can be seen at
