Fall 2012


This is the Fall-Winter 2012-13 issue of the bi-annual newsletter of the University Libraries at Western Kentucky University. This issue introduces the new Dean of WKU Libraries Connie Foster; a new Library System Office; a new service of iPad lending; and the on-going project of The Commons at Cravens, a brand new one-stop library service point where patrons can check out library materials and get professional help from the librarians and trained tech people in the same place. This issue features several award recipients, namely, the SOKY Book Fest, which has received Commendation from the KY School Media Association; Jim and Darlene Johnson, long-time supporters of the WKU Libraries, who have received the State Library Award from the KY Library Association; and George Ella Lyon and Lynne Avril, who have won the 2012 Evelyn Thurman Young Readers Book Award. Another highlight of this issue is the reception that the WKU Libraries have given in honor of WKU's art students who have created and installed their creative works of art in the Helm and Cravens Library. Attached to this issue is the Libraries 2012 Annual Report.
