‘What Is Soul?’ asks SU Library publicationFebruary 28, 2005Sara Millersemortim@syr.edu
As a part of Chancellor Nancy Cantor’s yearlong exploration of the “Soul of Syracuse,” the Syracuse University Library has published “What Is Soul? Exploring the Concept of Soul in the Greater Syracuse University Community,” an eight-page, four-color compilation of community reflections, definitions, quotations and resources on the concept of soul. The contents of this publication were selected from the library’s “What Is Soul” interactive Web site, located at http://library.syr.edu/soul. Students, faculty, current and retired staff, alumni, parents and friends at home and abroad have contributed to the site.
“What Is Soul?” is free and available at E.S. Bird and Carnegie Library reference desks, Schine Student Center, Goldstein Alumni and Faculty Center and other locations on campus. It will also be available at sites in the community in the coming weeks. It is available for distribution at all “Soul of Syracuse” events. Contact Terry Belzak at 443-9763 to request copies of this publication for an event.
In addition to the publication and the website, the library is sponsoring two upcoming special events between February and May as a part of their “What Is Soul?” program. On Feb. 28, the Library is hosting “Anticipating the Past: A Conversation with David H. Stam on the History of the Syracuse University Library.” On May 13, Charles V. Willie, Eliot Professor of Education Emeritus at Harvard University, will deliver the keynote address for “Community of Soul and the Soul of Community,” as part of the Library Associates spring luncheon.
The “What Is Soul?” keepsake publication was designed by Penelope Singer, technical specialist in the library’s Digital Imaging Services Center, and printed by Liverpool Litho. The printing of the publication was partially sponsored by the Syracuse University Office of Communications. For more information, visit the Web site or contact Gregory Griffin, chair of the Library’s Soul of Syracuse Committee at 443-2537.
