Library Research Award: Excellence in Information Literacy

The University Libraries supports undergraduate research by ensuring the students have access to academic journals, books, and other outside sources they need to be successful. We recognize outstanding student work through The University Libraries Undergraduate Research Award.

This award recognizes undergraduate research that showcases accomplished and exemplar information literacy skills. Students can demonstrate these skills in a variety of ways, such as in a bibliography that captures the scholarly conversation in a field of study; in a literature review that contextualizes the student’s work within their discipline; or in the use of manuscript, archival, or other primary sources to conduct original research.

Librarians will evaluate student projects on the following categories:

  • research process, strategies, and selection of outside sources to support the research project

  • source integration into the project and how the outside sources helped students understand the scholarly conversation on the topic and potentially influence the direction of the research project

  • attribution and consistent citations for any quotes, tables, graphs, photographs, and other content that is not the students' own work
