The 9th Annual Celebration of Scholarship and Creative Activity
an Exhibit of Faculty & Staff Publications and Works
For the month of February, Irwin Library will host Butler University’s 9th annual Celebration of Scholarship and Creative Activity. From Feb. 1 – 26, 2010, materials recently written, published, created, and performed by Butler faculty and staff will be on display throughout the main floor of Irwin Library.

A major role of the academic library is to promote scholarship, research, and professional accomplishment within the university. This takes different forms because “professional contributions” vary widely between academic disciplines. In one field it may be publishing a book, while in another it may be the norm to present posters at a conference or have a creative work performed for an audience.

This exhibit is an opportunity for Butler students and employees to find out more about the scholarly and creative activities of the faculty beyond that of just lecturing a few times a week. While some may view this as a showcase for faculty publications of books and articles, it is really much more than that. This is an event to celebrate scholarly and creative accomplishments by both faculty and staff and to see more of the whole person behind them.

Please stop into Irwin Library during the month of February to see what Butler’s faculty and staff have been doing this last year. You can also visit http://www.butler.edu/library/celebration for more information.
