October 23rd, 2007
Everyone is invited to celebrate the book release of Meredith Eliassen’s, Reference Specialist for Archives & Special Collections, San Francisco State University from Arcadia Publishing on Tuesday, October 23rd from 10 am to noon, in the 6th Floor Frank V. de Bellis Reading Room. Refreshments will be provided.
San Francisco State University is one of over 100 titles in Arcadia Publishing’s Campus History Series. Meredith Eliassen took on the project as a personal endeavor drawing upon the rich resources in our Archives, entirely on her own time and using her own personal resources to cover expenses. Meredith is also donating a portion of her royalties to a library fund specially earmarked for the Archives needs in the new library building.
Although this book was neither a University-sponsored project nor an authorized history, I think you will find it to be an engaging and professionally presented portrait of the University.
The book will be available for purchase and book-signing at the open house, courtesy of the SF State Bookstore. Also the book is available for purchase online and from SF State’s Bookstore, among other places.
