USU continues as a leader in bringing an interdisciplinary approach to water studies. More than ninety faculty members from departments in six of USU's academic colleges are currently involved in water research, teaching, and extension. Now, as then, water remains the life's work of many at USU; even as it remains the life's blood of Utah.
In recognition of these efforts and the 2015 Year of Water, the USU Libraries will host an exhibit detailing the rich history and contribution of USU's water researchers. Organized by curators Dan Davis and Bob Parson, the exhibit will run September 12, 2015 through November 6, 2015 in the Merrill-Cazier Library.
The opening reception and gallery talk will be held on Thursday, September 17 in the Merrill-Cazier Library's atrium from 4:30 to 6:30 PM. The gallery talk will be presented by University Archivist Bob Parson. Mr. Parson oversees the acquisition, organization, and care of Utah State University's permanent, historic record. His areas of emphasis include state and local history, including water issues in Utah.
USU Libraries will also feature a Year of Water digital exhibit in coordination with this event. It will go live on September 12 and will be found here:
