News about specific libraries.
Congratulations on your upcoming graduation from the University of Georgia!
Before leaving campus, please check your library account:
The Hargrett Library and the ITA Men’s Tennis Hall of Fame will be co-hosting a panel discussion on the history of the NCAA Tennis Championships in Athens on Wednesday, May 3, at the University of Georgia’s Richard B. Russell Special Collection Libraries. The discussion is free and open to the public, and will run from 5:30-6:30 p.m.
When the NCAAs return to Athens for the 29th time beginning May 18, it will mark the 45th anniversary of the championships’ first appearance at Georgia’s tennis facility, now called the Dan Magill Tennis Complex. Georgia men’s tennis coach Manuel Diaz was a Bulldog freshman playing for Magill when the NCAAs first arrived in 1972; he’s now in his 29th season as the Bulldogs’ head coach and has won three of his four national championships on the Dogs’ home courts.
Folksinger, scholar, and creative writer Dianne Dugaw, professor of English and Folklore at the University of Oregon, will give the keynote address at the Spring Book Symposium, "Living Texts" Feb. 23.
The symposium begins at 9:30 a.m. with UGA faculty participating in a roundtable discussion on "Making Archival Material Come Alive in the Classroom."
At 11 a.m., Dugaw, the author of books and articles on early modern and 18th-century literature and culture, especially exploring gender and sexuality in folksongs, literature, and history, will speak on "Fighting and Sailing Women in Anglo-American Prints, Songs, and History (1600--present)."
A workshop with participants examining and discussing rare books will take place at 2 p.m. following a lunch break.
All events take place in Room 277 of the Russell Special Collections Libraries.
“A Championship Tradition: The NCAA Tennis Tournament in Athens,” an exhibit marking the 29th time the NCAA Tennis Tournament has been held in Athens since 1972, opens Jan. 27 at the Richard B. Russell Building Special Collections Libraries. The exhibit is being co-sponsored by the ITA Tennis Hall of Fame at the University of Georgia.
This exhibit will explore the teams and players who have shaped the rich tradition of collegiate tennis in the Classic City through photographs and objects relating to the NCAA tournament using materials from archives of the UGA Athletic Association and the Hargrett Rare Book and Manuscript Library.
The UGA charter is on display during Founders Week, now through January 27 in the Hargrett Rare Book and Manuscript Library gallery of the Richard B. Russell Building Special Collections Libraries.
The Charter of the University of Georgia is one of the most significant documents in the history of America . Dated January 27, 1785, nine years after the Declaration of Independence and two and a half before the Constitution of the United States, it marks the earliest American example of the putting into practice of the principle that education is the responsibility of the state and should be state controlled.
To protect the ink of the parchment manuscript from further fading it is displayed to the public only once a year, during Founders Day activities.
Happy 232nd birthday UGA!
