Undergraduates: Want more than a grade for that research you are doing?

Research projects you completed this summer, this fall, and next spring may be eligible for the 2013 Library Prize for Undergraduate Research. This award recognizes excellence in undergraduate research projects that incorporate the use of Library collections and that demonstrate sophisticated information literacy skills on the part of the undergraduate researcher. Lower-division and upper-division student submissions are judged separately and the committee tries each year to award students in both categories.

Samuel Redman, an historian at the Regional Oral History Office and a current Library Prize Committee member, has written a great blog post about the prize. If you are curious about past winners, the most recent papers can be found at eScholarship. Application information and instructions are available at the Library Prize web site. The application deadline is April 19, 2013, 5:00pm.
