Each year the Mary Livermore Library produces a bibliography of the scholarship of UNCP faculty and staff. This bibliography of recent scholarly achievements includes books, chapters, journal articles, media, reviews, presentations, etc. from the previous year.
The bibliography is usually compiled and produced as a National Library Week (NLW) activity. A reception is held in the Library during NLW to honor and recognize all faculty and staff included in the most recent bibliography. A display of copies of the creative works is set up in the Main Reading Room of the Library, and the campus scholars are invited to attend the reception and participate in the celebration.
Library staff members believe that the accomplishments of UNCP faculty and staff are a significant part of the history of the University, so each year an attempt is made to identify, record, and archive as many of these accomplishments as possible.
Copies of the bibliography are made available in the Library for patrons and each scholar is given a personal copy. Two print copies for the Library are kept in Special Collections, and, beginning in 2009, copies of the bibliographies were made available online via the Library’s Special Collections/Archives web page.
