dc.descriptionPoster presented at the 2018 Annual Meeting of Southern Chapter of the Medical Library Association, October 25-28, 2018 Orlando, FLen
dc.description.abstractObjective: The Robert B. Greenblatt, M.D. Library established an author collection in 1979 as part of the Special Collections program. Books authored by faculty members were transferred from the circulating collection to Special Collections and became non-circulating. The purpose of this collection is to preserve the published monographs as a legacy of the individual and the institution. The library provides an annual event for all faculty who published written or edited books during the fiscal year to engage faculty in the importance of creative preservation. Methods: In 2014, the health sciences campus hosted the library’s first annual Faculty Author Reception. Invitations were sent to faculty who published monographs within the last five years requesting their company at this reception. Subsequent receptions featured monographs from the past year. A general invitation was sent to all faculty through the university community. This poster shares the experience of planning, implementation, maintenance, and evaluation of this new tea party. The challenges encountered including time, location, dissemination of announcements, and finding published works will be addressed. Results: The library has recognized over 100 faculty members from libraries on two campuses. The reception has expanded to include books written or edited, as well as other creative works such as art and films. The hosted event alternates between the health sciences library and the primarily undergraduate library with a short program and light refreshments. Conclusions: While this reception is only in its fifth year, positive feedback indicates this reception is well received and appreciated. Lessons learned have led to more concentrated planning, robust programming, and the author collection is growing. A set of guidelines for the committee has also been established.
