Gallery Reception to Honor Research of Science Faculty


Please join the University Libraries for a reception Thursday, Jan. 23, at 3 p.m. to celebrate the opening of the Science Faculty Research Gallery in the Science and Technology Library. Light refreshments provided.

The Science Faculty Research Gallery is a collection of journal covers featuring work from University of Akron researchers in biology, chemical engineering, chemistry, computer science, polymer engineering and polymer science. In the sciences, most research output is in the form of journal articles. Over time, a tradition developed of honoring particularly excellent articles by putting art from the article on the journal’s cover. To “get a cover” means the researchers have combined excellent research with something visually engaging. If you walk through the halls of a research building, you will see such journal covers proudly displayed on doorways and lab windows.

  • Dr. Matthew Becker
