Scientists, Writers, Historians, Oh my!

Did you know that many Austin Community College faculty members are published authors? If you've ever wondered who wrote the scholarly journal article of the novel in your citation, the answer may be "your professor!" Not only are they considered experts in their fields, but they actively continue to contribute by sharing their scholarly findings, fiction, poetry, and so much more. You may even find their work in your local ACC Library or in our online databases.

ACC Library Services celebrates the work of ACC professors by maintaining a web page of their published works, performances, exhibits, and other achievements. We feature work by scientists, writers, historians, and more.

The next time you across the "authority" question on the CRAAP test, you might find out that the author works in your field, belongs to professional organizations, or teaches the next generation. You may even be enrolled in one of their classes.

For faculty members: are you a published author? Is your work on display? We want to hear about it! Simply fill out this form, and we'll feature your work on the ACC Libraries website. Don't forget to take a gander at our guidelines.
