Introducing the Georgia Southern Authors Lounge

The GS Authors Lounge will be located on the 3rd floor at Henderson Library on the Statesboro Campus. This will be a permanent, physical collection of books, articles, CDs, and DVDs recognizing GS faculty, staff, students, and alumni for their scholarship and creative work. A computer station will be available to showcase their digital publications as well. Each spring, we will celebrate works published during the previous year.

Georgia Southern University faculty, staff, students, and alumni can identify their works using this form. (If you would like to bypass the form and submit your list of publications or a CV, please send it to Dr. Katia G. Karadjova (, Associate Dean of Libraries for Research & Assessment. Eligible works are published articles, books, book chapters, special issues of journals, substantive encyclopedia entries, poetry, musical compositions, audio recordings, film/video recordings, and art exhibition catalogs.

The GS Authors Lounge Celebration will highlight our aim “to enhance quality of life through scholarly pursuits, cultural enrichment, and community engagement” articulated in the GS mission. This annual event will honor GS authors (faculty, staff, students and alumni) each year.
