Each year the Library invites faculty members to submit proposals for the one-time purchase of new library materials as part of the Library Enhancement Initiative. The purpose of this initiative is to support faculty who are developing new courses or research interests by purchasing needed library materials to enhance or grow the library collections.
The funds for this initiative are provided through the generosity of UTC alumni who make monetary gifts to the Lupton Library. In the past five years, the initiative funded 62 proposals, from across all colleges and many departments, and spent approximately $48,000. The dollar limit set this year for proposals is $750 per faculty member.
Please take this opportunity to directly impact the Library collection through the purchase of materials that support you, your students, your department, or your college. The deadline for proposals is December 11, 2011. The proposal form is available at: www.lib.utc.edu/forms/form-enha.php.

Cut and Paste: Strategies to Avoid Plagiarism (50 min.)
You can’t just “borrow” a friend’s term paper and change the name, but what are the more complex issues related to plagiarism? Discuss what constitutes plagiarism and learn how to cite sources properly; sleep with a clear academic conscience. Maybe someday you’ll learn you can’t just “borrow” your friend’s money either.

If TV is an indicator, people are kind of obsessed with finding treasure in unlikely places. Whether you prefer the gee-golly finds of Antiques Roadshow, the high-end swaps of Pawn Stars, or any of the programs in between (ahem, American Pickers, Auction Hunters, etc.), if you enjoy digging, we think you’ll love our library book sale. We certainly can’t guarantee you’ll find treasure in the sense of monetary value (though you never know …) but perhaps you’ll find something more valuable: intellectual delight — or a book that’s the perfect size to fit under your washing machine to keep it from making so much noise when you’re watching Storage Wars (Seriously? Storage Wars?). Neither of these uses can be underestimated. The Library Book Sale is open for business all next week and each item costs $1.
Library Book Sale
10 a.m.-3 p.m.
All items $1 (cash only, please)
