This annual competition awards prizes in several categories to undergraduate students who demonstrate excellence in library research skills by using a breadth of library resources for their research projects, course assignments, and creative endeavors.

Students from every discipline are invited to submit a brief essay describing the many ways in which they used library resources for a project or assignment completed during summer 2020, fall 2020, Winter Session 2020-21, or spring 2021. Library resources include but are not limited to the following categories: Online Catalogs and Search Tools, Digital and Print Resources, Library Collections, People, Spaces, Specialized Technologies, and Programs and Services.

All winners receive a cash prize, are featured on and other University websites, and are featured online in our Library Research Award Winners Circle.
