College creates bibliography of published work

NORFOLK, Va. – (April 20, 2004) – Tidewater Community College faculty, as most college and university professors, write and publish their work. You’ll find them cited as authors of journal articles, books, chapters in reference materials, and more.

But until now there was no way to find TCC faculty authors and their works in one source. Thanks to Janice Johnson and the work of many TCC campus librarians, this information now appears in a published booklet. The project, the brainchild of Johnson, coordinator of learning resources at the Virginia Beach Campus, originated last year during national library week with a display of faculty authors at the TCC Jeanne and George Roper Performing Arts Center. “Faculty members do more than teach and encourage students. They also share their knowledge through their writings and we wanted to highlight their efforts,” Johnson explains. She hopes more TCC faculty will come forward and join the 31 authors already cited.

This year during national library week, April 18-24, interested readers can pick up a copy of the newly produced faculty author listing at any TCC library location or at on the library page. The listing includes a wide variety of published works such as “Computer Concepts Basics” by Ann Ambrose, “African Wildlife: A Photographic Journal” by Pam Barcita, with photos by Ronn Maratea, “She’s Leaving Home: Letting Go As My Daughter Goes to College” by Constance Jones, “Through the Back Door into Cyberspace” by Donna Reiss with Dona Hickey, “Crazy Horse in Heaven” by Robert Arthur and “A Taste of Merlot: The Multimedia Resources for Historians and Others” by William Pacquette.
