The cross-section of expertise at Drexel was showcased through the vast array of disciplines and topics covered by these authors and editors. President John A. Fry provided the opening remarks as members of the campus community gathered in the A.J. Drexel Picture Gallery, in the University’s Main Building. Provost Mark Greenberg and Dean of Libraries, Danuta A. Nitecki, individually recognized the editors and authors, who represented each of Drexel’s 13 schools and colleges as well as the Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University and Drexel University Sacramento.

The annual event was hosted by the Office of the Provost and University Libraries. Authors with books published in 2013 should contact the Libraries to be included in the 2014 event. For more information, contact Jenny James Lee at 215-571-4095 or jaj92@drexel.edu.
