Salute 100 Years of Service at Friday's Federal Depository Celebration

This Friday the Miami University Libraries are celebrating 100 years as Federal Depository Libraries.

Government Publications have been received by Miami since the 1850's, and have always been a cornerstone collection of the Miami University Libraries. This Friday, you can join us for an event celebrating our Centennial as an official Federal Depository Library.

The Celebration is slated for 2:00 p.m., Friday, November 13, in Room 320 of King Library, and will include the presentation to Dean Judith Sessions of a plaque from the Government Printing Office commemorating this rare milestone. The event is open to all members of the Miami University community as well as to the general public. Refreshments will be served.

We encourage you to visit the range of special Government materials already on display in the Walter Havighurst Special Collections, and to enjoy the Government-published World War II propaganda posters lining King Library's main staircase.

Remember that to help decorate the GIL area for Friday, students, faculty, staff and their families can enter the GIL coloring contest. Read more about this activity in our previous post.

If you can't make the centennial event, you find find a few surprises awaiting you in the IMC/GIL throughout the day on Friday. We hope to see you there!
