We are very pleased to announce that Harrison Helms, Mercedes Sarah, Maurice Safar, and Amanda Sotolongo are this year’s recipients of the Emory Libraries’ Elizabeth Long Atwood Undergraduate Research Award. The Atwood Award recognizes Emory College undergraduates in all disciplines who use the Emory Libraries’ collections and research resources in their original papers, digital projects, or posters and who show evidence of critical analysis in their research skills.
