About the Library Prizes for Undergraduate Research
The Library Prize for Undergraduate Research was established to encourage the use of Library resources, to enhance the development of library research techniques, and to honor the best research projects produced each year by Temple University undergraduate students.
Established in 2004, up to three projects are selected each year to win $1000. Winning entries exhibit: originality, depth, breadth, or sophistication in the use of library collections; exceptional ability to select, evaluate, synthesize, and utilize library resources in the creation of a project in any media; and evidence of personal growth through the acquisition of newfound knowledge.
In the 2010-11 academic year, Temple Libraries and Gale, a leading organization in e-research and educational publishing, established a second competition, the Library Prize for Undergraduate Research on Sustainability & the Environment, to encourage research and projects in the area of sustainability. In addition to the above criteria, winning entries will contribute to our understanding of sustainability or help improve or develop sustainable practices.
Students who submit winning projects will be recognized at an award ceremony and reception to be held in the Lecture Hall of Paley Library on May 1, 2014 from 4 - 6 PM.
