We Love our Student Workers: Undergraduate Research Symposium Edition

The William H. Hannon Library would like to congratulate Michael Mandrinkian, the winner of the Bellarmine Forum Undergraduate Research Award for his project called The Lost Text: A History of The Rych Cheyne. Michael’s research involved an anonymous, 16th century manuscript, held by our own Hannon Library’s special collections. The manuscript, entitled The Riche Cheyne, contains all of the Biblical books of Proverbs and Ecclesiastes.
