On December 9, the Touro College Libraries hosted the 4th annual Faculty Author Reception. We are honored to recognize the contributions of our faculty to academic scholarship. The library publishes an annual book, as well as an online database, listing publications by Touro community members in many fields, including science, medicine, art, literature, and history. Beginning in 2009, the library took the initiative of collecting this wealth of material, and we feel privileged to share it with the world of academic research.
The reception was held at 50 West 23rd Street and was very well attended. We were honored to have Dr. Mark Hasten, Chairman of the Board of Trustees, address the assemblage. He spoke about the rich heritage of the Touro College and University System and his long association with the institution. Rabbi Krupka spoke about the achievements of the Touro scholars and how the Faculty Publications books enhance the prestige of our institution. Dr. Howard Feldman, an honoree for his academic scholarship, gave a fascinating presentation of some of his research, including an archaeological dig in Israel, complete with maps and artifacts.
Sara Tabaei, Library Information Literacy Services Director, and coordinator of the faculty databases project presented Esther Greenfield with a token of appreciation for all of her efforts overseeing the design and printing of the book.
The library is extremely grateful for the unconditional support that we receive from Dr. Alan Kadish, President and CEO of Touro College and University Systems and Rabbi Moshe Krupa, Senior Vice President.
