On Thursday, December 8, 2022, the Friends of the Lehigh University Libraries hosted its 11th annual Harvest of Ideas reception in the Linderman Library Rotunda for faculty who published or edited a book or composition during the previous year. Greg Reihman, Vice Provost for Library and Technology services, Boaz Nadav-Manes, University Librarian, Ollie Foucek, member of the Friends of the Lehigh University Libraries Board, and Jasmine Woodson, Assistant Director of Instruction and Outreach & Education Librarian, presided over the celebration.

The Faculty Authors collection represents a range of scholarly output, and this year's additions include monographs, textbooks, guidebooks, and more by faculty from across Lehigh’s colleges. A copy of each book authored by Lehigh faculty is added to Special Collections and noted in the library catalog. Faculty-authored books are also on display in the Linderman Library reading room.
