This spring/summer 2013 issue features Al and Jeane Baker honored for their in-kind gift to the libraries' centennial mural as well as Dr. Nicholson who won this year's Kentucky Literary Award for his book about Derby. The issue also highlights the 2013 SOKY Book Fest that brought in 130 authors. It reports the newly renovated Commons at Cravens and the just installed web-based service StackMap, which can visually guide users to the stacks of books in Cravens Library using their smart phones. As usual, all of the Libraries’ literary events have been mentioned in the issue, particularly the new grant-supported “America’s Music” series co-organized with the WKU’s Music Department. Announcements it makes include the new Faraway Flix film series co-sponsored with the International Student and Scholar Services as well as the naming of a new department head for the Library Technological Services. Unfortunately two of the Libraries’ worthy colleagues passed away in the past year, and a remembrance is part of this issue in their memory.
