In 2006, Kresge Library and the Senate Library Committee inaugurated the annual Authors at Oakland University event devoted to the theme of A Celebration of the Book. Of course, in many fields of knowledge, the journal article is the lifeblood of scholarship; thus the second Authors at OU event became A Celebration of the Journal. From that point on the event has rotated between celebrations of the book and the journal article. At each event, faculty publications in the year’s celebrated format from the previous two years are honored and displayed. Also, two representative authors are selected by the Senate Library Committee to present brief presentations on their highlighted work.
Calling all cars: Radio dragnets and the technology of policing.
Cold-blooded kindness: Neuroquirks of a codependent killer, or just give me a shot at loving you, dear, and other reflections on helping that hurts.
