Information literacy awards will be presented to the top presenters demonstrating an excellence in information literacy through either:
- Bibliography or literature review contributing to research in any field including the sciences, engineering, social sciences, humanities, and arts
- Use of manuscript, archival, or other primary resources to conduct original research
Judging is based on:
- Information research process and strategies
- Social, ethical, or economic considerations in accessing information
- Relationship of the background information gathered to the project direction
- Credit and proper citation for any quotes, tables, graphs, photographs, and other content used in the poster that are not the student's own work
- Information on critical sources used, as space allows in the poster
If you are interested in being considered for this award, please mark the appropriate box on your registration form.
Prizes awarded will be $150 for first place, $100 for second place, and up to five $50 honorable mentions.
Poster creation workshops in April will provide more information about the awards and tools for effective poster design. Please stop by the library or contact a librarian if you have any questions.
