UWM Authors Recognition Ceremony
A biennial event for UWM authors is the UWM Authors Recognition Ceremony. This event, which has been held every two years since its inception in 1992, is a significant campus tradition. This event honors UWM faculty and staff whose published monographs and recordings have been added to the UWM Authors Collection during the two years since the previous ceremony. Faculty and staff who have written, edited, translated, or illustrated a book; composed music for a published score or recording; or had a primary role in creating a commercially distributed film or video since the last event should contact Special Collections by phone at (414) 229-4345 or via e-mail at email@example.com to be included in the next ceremony.
As part of the ceremony, authors are asked to sign bookplates identifying their work as part of the UWM Authors Collection. This event also gives those attending the ceremony the opportunity to view an exhibit showing the variety of works already in the collection, as well as an opportunity to meet with colleagues over refreshments. The UWM Authors Collection, which currently contains more than 1,500 published monographs, is an important part of the Golda Meir Librarys holdings because the works in this collection document the intellectual heritage of the university and the contributions of UWM faculty and staff to contemporary scholarship.
