Appreciating Our Researchers
Touro Libraries Host Annual Faculty-Author Appreciation Reception
This November, the Touro College Libraries held the 4th annual Faculty-Author Appreciation Reception, honoring faculty throughout the Touro College and University System (including New York Medical College) who authored publications in 2014.
Addressing the gathering of faculty authors, staff, and invited guests, Dr. Alan Kadish, Touro College and University System President, and Mrs. Bashe Simon, Director of Touro Libraries, applauded the scholars on their research and publications. Interim Provost and Dean of the Jacob D. Fuchsberg Law Center, Patricia Salkin, spoke about open access and increasing Touro’s online research presence. Dr. Meira Orentlicher, occupational therapy professor and coordinator of OT Research and Development at Touro's School of Health Sciecnes, discussed some of her current research.
The event also marked the printing of the new edition of the Faculty Publications book, which included the citations of all Touro College academic works from 2014. The edition was compiled by Carrie Levinson, the Scholarly Communication librarian.
The Touro College Libraries, under the leadership of Director Bashe Simon, and Library Information Literacy Director Sara Tabaei, M.L.S., have published this book annually since 2010. Most Touro faculty publications since 1970 can be found online in the Faculty Publications Database.
Watch a sampling of attendees at the event speak about their research interests, scholarly works, and thoughts on publishing.
