Creations @ Baylor Scheduled

The Baylor University Libraries are planning the ninth annual "Creations @ Baylor: Libraries Spotlight Scholarship and the Arts." The exhibit will be located in the Allbritton Foyer of Moody Memorial Library March 1 through April 22.

Submission forms for the 2005 event are due by Feb. 4. For a copy of the form, contact the exhibit chair, Carol Schuetz at Carol_Carson@baylor.edu or 710-4410. Those participating this year will be honored at a reception on March 2.

Two years ago, the Creations committee changed the title of the exhibit in an effort to highlight all the scholarship created at Baylor. Since scholarship spans more than books or artworks, the criteria was expanded to include any creation by faculty and staff considered "scholarly" for the particular area. For example, chapters, articles in peer-reviewed journals or artworks that have been exhibited in juried shows are acceptable. The main criteria is that these materials were published or exhibited from March 2004 through February 2005.

"This year's event will include an exhibit highlighting contributions to the library of the late Dr. A.J. Conyers, a faithful contributor to the 'Creations @ Baylor' showcase," Schuetz said.

The exhibit cannot showcase every article and book in a case, Schuetz said, so the committee continually looks at new ways to display these varied formats. Last year the show included artwork, books, articles, plays, poetry and other creations.

For more information, contact Schuetz or the reception chair, Beth Tice Beth_Tice@baylor.edu or 710-3679.
