The Library is pleased to announce the 2010 winner of the Undergraduate Library Research Award. Jeremy Colangelo’s winning essay described how he used library resources and services for his History paper entitled “Mind the Gap: Sexism and the Eighteenth Century Courts.” Jeremy, who is studying History and English, demonstrated excellent writing skills and a clear grasp of the purpose for doing research. Jeremy made use of both primary and secondary sources in a variety of formats, and he worked closely with both his professor and the librarians. His description of how he did his research and what he learned from doing so was thoughtful, articulate, and engaging.
The Library Research Award is a $500 prize, awarded annually, to recognise and celebrate success in conducting undergraduate research. For more information, please contact Karen Bordonaro, Instruction Coordinator.
