Scholarship is alive and well at NU

From an announcement by the NU library:
While construction continued outside on the new Learning Library, Nipissing’s current library held a celebration of the people whose works will help fill the new book shelves. Nipissing University celebrated its faculty who recently published books at the Education Centre Library’s 2009 Faculty Book Launch, held on December 3 in the Library’s Gallery Lounge.

There are 19 new books that have been authored or co-authored by Nipissing faculty since 2008. The books represent an impressively diverse range of academic disciplines and topics, from global politics and family history to educational leadership and the environment.

“Book publication is a major form of research output and a fundamental aspect of scholarly life. The Education Centre Library is delighted to support faculty at Nipissing by acknowledging that having a book published is a defining moment for scholars,” said Lynne Prunskus, associate director of library services, who conceived of and organized the event.
