This week is  University Press Week, a celebration of university press publishing established by President Carter in 1978. The theme this year is ” Raise UP,” focusing on the role that university presses play in amplifying excluded voices and themes. In 2012, the  Association of University Presses revived the idea of this celebration to recognize the impact that a global community of university presses has on every one of us. We mark University Press Week each November with a new theme, events, featured UP work, blog tours, and more. Many thanks to the University of Michigan Press for the reminder! We need to put this on the Charleston Conference calendar for an annual celebration!

Ivy Anderson

The awesome, earnest and dedicated Ivy Anderson, California Digital Library’s Collection Development & Management Director/Associate Executive Director, will be retiring from the University in June 2021. Günter Waibel, Associate Vice Provost & Executive Director, California Digital Library shared the news. A broader celebration of Ivy and her impressive career is planned for when her retirement is imminent. Until then,  many thanks to Ivy for her contributions, vision, wise counsel, and exemplary dedication to the library profession.

Le Farfalle

Just noticed this article in Architectural Digest about beautifully designed outdoor dining experiences in America.  Here’s a place to put on your list the next time you are in Charleston! Le Farfalle (Charleston, South Carolina) “This opulent osteria in downtown Charleston founded by ex–New Yorkers Caitlin and Michael Toscano (she worked at Per Se, he opened Perla) is the definition of refined relaxation. Outdoor seating is in a garden walled in by the restaurant building’s historic red-brick, with potted palms, and a towering tree providing shade and atmosphere.”
