The Student Library Service Bookplate Program honors graduating student employees by inviting them to choose books or other items for the Library’s collections. Each item will include a bookplate acknowledging the student’s selection and recognizing his or her service to the Library. Eligible students have worked at least two terms in a Library department, including the Student Center for Research, Writing and Information Technology (RWIT).
“The tremendous quality and quantity of assistance that the library’s student workers provide is invaluable. It’s great that we’re able to honor the achievements of those graduating with items that have personal meaning to them,” observed Greg Potter, Research and Information Desk Coordinator. In addition to Potter and Cox, the Bookplate Program committee includes Goodie Corriveau, Wendel Cox, Julie McIntyre, and Tim Wolfe.
“The selections reflect student interests, passions, and humor,” said Cox, Research and Instruction Services (RIS) librarian for History and English. “It is always fascinating to see what they choose.”
For 2017, Dartmouth College Library honors 34 students with selections including works of fiction, musical CDs, and classic works of the cartoon arts to a musical score and a history of makeup.
An exhibit of student honorees and their selections, created by Dennis Grady, Dartmouth College Library Web Support and Graphic Arts Specialist, runs in Baker Main Hall June 9-August 30, 2017. Baker-Berry Library display panels will also present each honoree’s selection.
