Research and scholarship is at the core of Virginia Tech’s mission. The University Libraries, in partnership with the Provost's Office, the Office of the Vice President for Research, and Virginia Tech's Chapter of Phi Beta Kappa, are co-sponsoring and coordinating the seventh annual Virginia Tech Authors Day to honor the authors' academic contributions to the university. The occasion is celebrated every spring in Newman Library, with a program that introduces the authors, and stages a display of their publications. A reception follows a book talk by one or two selected authors.
Through this program, the University Libraries proudly supports Virginia Tech authors, as they share their successes in scholarship, creative thought and professional achievements through published works.
The Visible Scholarship Initiative is a collaboration between the College of Liberal Arts and Human Sciences and the University Libraries that seeks to make visible the stages of research and creative scholarship in the liberal arts and human sciences. Illustrating how faculty address key questions, employ varied methods, and produce significant results makes it possible to acknowledge and encourage research and creative activities that engage challenging questions and demonstrate sophisticated understanding.
The Course Exhibition Initiative is part of an ongoing project to showcase the learning that happens at Virginia Tech as a shared experience. Exhibits will be featured in the second floor commons of Newman Library and will highlight innovative and interdisciplinary approaches to learning as well as provide an adaptive space for discovery and engagement.
