New collection of autographed books at the Libraries thanks to AUB’s Transformative Education Drive

​The AUB Libraries have recently received two autographed books thanks to AUB's Transformative Education Drive (TrEd) Mentoring Talks and other TrEd events, planned by Professor Bilal Kaafarani and the TrEd Drive team.

Since 2018, several of the renowned speakers at the TrEd activities have autographed copies of their books to share with the AUB Community. In collaboration with the University Libraries' Interim Director, Ms. Fatmeh Charafeddine, these books (a total of 5 so far) have been placed at the Jafet Library or at the Science and Agriculture Library on campus for safekeeping, and for access to the entire community.

The following autographed books have already been placed at the University Libraries. We hope that AUB researchers and learners will benefit from these special editions and enjoy reading them.

  1. Time Series and Panel Data Econometrics", autographed by Prof. M. Hashem Pesaran on March 11, 2022 (book available in the Jafet Library).
  2. How To Change", autographed by Prof. Katy Milkman on March 9, 2022 (book available in the Jafet Library).
  3. “How to Walk on Water and Climb up Walls", autographed by Prof. David L. Hu on March 4, 2019 (book available in the Science Library).
  4. La vie a plus d'imagination que toi", autographed by former French Minister of Education Najat Vallaud-Belkacem on April 25, 2019 (book available in the Jafet Library).
  5. The Nature of the Mechanical Bond: From Molecules to Machines", autographed by 2016 Chemistry Nobel Laureate Sir Fraser Stoddart on Sep 4, 2018 (book available in the Science Library).
