Highlights From Friends of the Library Book Talk
CSU President Michael Schwartz and CSU Professor of Public Administration and Urban Studies William Bowen discussed their thought-provoking and relevant new book, The Chief Purpose of Universities: Academic Discourse and the Diversity of Ideas (Edwin Mellen Press, 2005) at a special Library program on Thursday, September 22 sponsored by the Friends of the CSU Library.
The program, moderated by Friends of the Library President and CSU History Professor Emeritus, William I. Shorrock, began with a brief overview by the authors of their book in which they discussed their belief that "the highest priority within universities is to create, preserve, transmit, and find new applications of knowledge to extend free choice through society" ("Reference & Research Book News", May 2005, p. 220). They went on to outline briefly what they contend to be the enemies of universities and to explain the seven requisites for success. The authors then fielded questions from CSU faculty, staff and students in attendance. A brief reception followed.
Note: Two copies of the book are available on reserve at the Circulation Desk on the first floor of the University Library.
