About the Liebau Library Prize

Content section: 

The Library Prize for Undergraduate Research recognizes students whose undergraduate research projects demonstrate use of Library collections and exemplify advanced information literacy and research skills. Launched in 2003, the Library Prize  received the campus Educational Initiative Award in 2005.

“The Library Prize not only honors the work done by undergraduates, it provides criteria and structure for those who wish to compete for the Prize as well as incentive for students to increase their information literacy by putting it into practice.”
- Jane Hammons, College Writing Programs


The Charlene Conrad Liebau Library Prize has itself been honored with campus and national awards as a model for other institutions.
