36 Faculty Members Honored at Author Reception

UT Dallas President Included in Group With Works Published in Previous Year

Oct. 22, 2008

Thirty-six faculty members were recently honored at the 3rd Annual University of Texas at Dallas Faculty Author Reception.

The honorees were recognized for published and creative works from the past year.

The recognized faculty included UT Dallas President David E. Daniel, who published Waste Containment Facilities: Guidance for Construction Quality Assurance and Construction Quality Control of Liner and Cover Systems with Robert M. Koerner.

More than 100 faculty members, McDermott Library staff and guests attended the reception in the McDermott Suite on the fourth level of the library. The honored faculty were greeted by special gallery of framed mini-posters of themselves with their published work.

The reception is sponsored by Executive Vice President and Provost Hobson Wildenthal and Dean of Libraries Larry D. Sall.

“In three short years we have seen this program grow in spirit and participation on the part of our faculty,” said Dr. Sall. “McDermott Library is pleased to be a part of this proud new tradition at UT Dallas.”

In addition, as part of the library’s “Achieving Tenure: Celebrating Books” program, faculty members who have been redesignated from assistant professor without tenure to associate professor with tenure have the opportunity to select a book that has been meaningful to them, either professionally or personally, to be added to the library collection.

The library identifies the selection with a bookplate noting the faculty member and the year that member achieved tenure.

The authors and editors and the titles of their works are as follows.
