Each year, The Friends of the University Libraries recognizes members of the University community for their scholarly publications and artistic achievements. We would appreciate your assistance in identifying worthy individuals or nominating yourself for recognition of accomplishments that occurred in 2016.
During the past twenty-nine years, The Friends has publicly expressed appreciation to more than 1,000 BGSU faculty and staff for their important contributions to their disciplines, the culture, and the University. This year, honorees will be selected for accomplishments from January 1, 2016 to December 31, 2016. We will honor them at a reception on April 6, 2017.
We are asking you to nominate individual(s) from within your department/area or to nominate yourself by completing the nomination form, which is available on the Friends web site. Self-nominations are acceptable. If individuals from your area submit self-nominations, we might contact you for verification of their eligibility.
When you nominate individuals(s) from your department or area or nominate yourself, please take special note of the following:
- Carefully review the criteria for recognizing BGSU authors, artists, etc.
- Ensure that each nominee was employed by BGSU at some time during the period from January 1, 2016 to December 31, 2016 and that the activity being nominated falls within the same period.
- Note that retired faculty and staff are eligible for nomination.
To ensure that all nominations receive full consideration, nominations must be received no later than 5:00 p.m., Friday, March 3, 2017.
Thank you for participating with The Friends in this important project. Questions can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
