Have you ever wondered what your professor does when s/he is not teaching you or grading papers?

The Celebration of Scholarship & Creative Activity is an exhibit in Irwin Library that runs through February 28. There are tables around the main floor of Irwin Library where you can see (and read) books, articles, music scores, posters, programs, etc., that your professors have written/published/performed in the last year.

Stop into Irwin Library and look up your professor! The printed bibliographies can serve as an Exhibit Guide to make it easy for you to find people.
