Thanks to the generous gift of SMU Libraries Executive Board member Larrie Weil and his wife Bobbi, Central University Libraries is pleased to announce the Larrie and Bobbi Weil Undergraduate Research Award for excellence in library research. All undergraduate students are eligible, based on a research project completed during the preceding calendar year.
Members of the faculty, in reading and grading undergraduate research papers, will choose papers for nomination. Nominated papers should demonstrate depth and breadth in the use of library research materials and clear evidence of thoughtful command of these resources. Faculty members should notify students of their intent to nominate papers. To be eligible, students must be registered for the semester in which the award is presented. Any papers from the spring 2016, summer 2016, or fall 2016 semesters are eligible for the award, which will be presented at the Honors Convocation in April 2017. Submissions are accepted in electronic form only; please attach the paper as a Word document and send to Elizabeth Killingsworth, Head of Research Services and Director of the Fondren Library (firstname.lastname@example.org). Papers will be accepted for consideration if received on or before Friday, February 3, 2017.
