Workshops for URCAF presenters will be held on March 29th (5pm) and March 30th (12:10pm) in Eiche 202 to help prepare the projects for the Fair.
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
If you would like to have your submission to the Undergraduate Research and Creative Activities Fair considered for the Libraries Undergraduate Research Award, please fill out the following form. Deadline to apply for the 2023 Library Research Award: Wednesday April 12th at 11:59pm.
