Undergraduate Library Research Award

Each spring, the LMU Library sponsors an Undergraduate Library Research Award to recognize and reward LMU undergraduate students whose research makes expert and creative use of the services, resources, and collections of the William H. Hannon Library to produce a scholarly or creative work. A prize of $1,000 will be awarded to one undergraduate student, plus two honorable mentions of $450 each.

Excellent research papers from this class could be strong contenders for the 2013 award, so speak with your professor if you feel that you'd like to have your work considered for next year.
