Dear undergraduate students, did you work on a stellar research paper or digital project during the past academic year? If your answer is yes, please consider submitting it for the Elizabeth Long Atwood Award. The Emory Libraries are again sponsoring an award for undergraduate research. A panel of faculty and librarians from Emory’s Atlanta and Oxford campuses will award up to four prizes of $1,000 each to those undergraduate students who 1) use the Woodruff Library‚Äôs collections and research resources in their original papers, posters, or digital projects; and 2) show evidence of critical analysis in their research skills (i.e., locating, selecting, evaluating, and synthesizing information).
