The librarians of the William H. Hannon Library accepts submissions for the Undergraduate Library Research Award each year! The purpose of this award is to recognize and reward LMU undergraduate students whose research makes sophisticated and creative use of the services, resources, and collections of the William H. Hannon Library to produce a scholarly or creative work.
A prize of $1,000 will be awarded to one undergraduate student, plus two honorable mentions of $450 each. A Faculty member must nominate each student and write a letter of support. Student nominees must write a brief essay describing their use of library resources in completing their project. Submissions will be evaluated by a panel of faculty and librarians.
