Winners of the Annual Library Research Prize and Judges

Elisabeth Muller MA'19 and Sydney Williams ’19 were awarded $1,000 as graduate and undergraduate research prize winners for their research strategies and demonstrated use of library resources.

Each year the DiMenna-Nyselius Library recognizes one graduate and one undergraduate student for a research project that demonstrates effective research strategies and use of library resources, services, and collaboration with library staff. Student research projects are judged based on use of library collections; ability to locate, select, evaluate, and effectively use library resources; and evidence of personal learning in the methods of research and the information gathering process. Students receive a $1,000 cash prize and are honored at an annual reception. The Library also awards two $250 cash prizes for honorable mentions.

This year the DiMenna-Nyselius Library recognized the following students for the 2018-19 academic year:
