Promoting Research Skills & Information Literacy with the Undergraduate Research Prize
The Undergraduate Research Prize not only recognizes students who demonstrated innovation and excellence in research, scholarship, and use of information sources, it also serves to highlight the essential role of the library in the academic research process. We think it is important to be able to offer this award to undergraduate students in perpetuity, but in order to do so we need significant donor support to fund the Prize long-term.
In 2017, six students received U of T Libraries' Undergraduate Research Prize for their innovative and effective search and use of sources in completing course assignments. The winners worked with a wide variety of materials including scholarly journals and primary sources found in archives and government documents.
It is wonderful to see the research students produce from the wealth of information that we have available here at the University of Toronto Libraries, said U of T Libraries Chief Librarian Larry Alford.
