Congratulations to Rae M. Gibson, winner of the 2011 Undergraduate Library Research Award. Gibson's winning essay described her approach to research and library tools such as PsycINFO and the Psychology Research Guide that she used to prepare her paper, "Errorless learning efficacy among older adults with memory impairment", for an upper-year Psychology course.
The Library Research Award is a $500 prize designed to recognise and celebrate success in conducting undergraduate research. Karen Bordonaro, Teaching & Learning Librarian and Chair of the award committee, notes the strength of Gibson's entry: "Rae did an excellent job of describing how her use of library resources and services helped her develop her scientific research and writing skills. In giving this award, the Library is proud to support student learning beyond the classroom by recognising information seeking as an intellectual process worthy of being celebrated."
