This Week in the Library

May 23-27, 2016

Andy Spackman to Present the S. Lyman Tyler Faculty Professionalism Award Lecture

Tuesday, May 24th, 3pm

The Harold B. Lee Library, BYU

As most of you are aware, the annual Library Faculty Professionalism Award was named last year for S. Lyman Tyler, former director of the Harold B. Lee Library from 1954 to 1966. He planned for and moved the library to our current building, expanded collections significantly, and established the special collections and archives program at BYU. Tyler was trained as a historian and conducted research and wrote on the American West. He later became the director of the American West Center at the University of Utah and was also a president of the Utah Library Association.


Andy Spackman received this award last August at the annual library meetings before school began in the fall. The recipient of this award also has the opportunity to share his research at a newly established annual lecture.


Please join us at the first S. Lyman Tyler Faculty Professionalism Award Lecture given by Andy Spackman on Tuesday, May 24th at 3:00 p.m. in the Harold B. Lee Library Auditorium.
