Winner of the Brubaker Award

By Sarah Cahalan, Director of the Marian Library

We're delighted to announce that a former colleague has won an award for her work on a Marian Library collection. Jillian Slater Ewalt, who worked at the Marian Library as Librarian/Archivist until spring 2016, won the John Brubaker Memorial Award for the best article to appear in Catholic Library World for 2015-2016. The article discusses an exhibition of archival photographs that was used in an interdisciplinary undergraduate class, Development of Western Culture in a Global Context (ASI 120), as well as how the exhibit was leveraged in conversations about the campus-wide educational theme of "Faith and Reason."

The exhibit, "Faith, Reason, and One Hour Processing," consisted of enlarged reproductions of images from the Marian Apparitions Collection, an archival collection held in the Marian Library. Whether you are interested in teaching with collections, collaborations between archivists and artists, or would like to learn a bit more about the apparitions collection, a good place to start would be Jillian's article. It's available for download from our institutional repository.
