The reception is hosted by the Office of Library and Information Technology and the Provost's office.
"In fall 2008, we celebrated Bucknell faculty authors with a display and reception at Bertrand Library that was well attended and served as a wonderful celebration of faculty scholarship," said Param Bedi, chief information officer at Bucknell.
"This spring we celebrate faculty scholarship with a focus on published journal articles, exhibits, performances, films and other works completed in the past three years," he said.
Bedi and Provost Mick Smyer will give brief remarks at 4:30, followed by faculty presentations between 4:30 and 5 p.m.
"More than 50 faculty members have submitted more than 150 of their scholarly achievements to be recognized for this event," said Bedi. "Faculty from 21 academic departments will be represented at this event."
