Calvert Awards: Celebrating Undergraduate Research

2015 Calvert Award winners Bella Victoria Smith (second from left), Lee M. Hanover (third from left), Manuela Bowles (third from right), and Katie Cannata (second from right) celebrate their achievement with Dean Patricia Iannuzzi (right) and Head of Educational Initiatives Melissa Bowles-Terry (left).

One of the hallmarks of an education at a Top Tier research university is the opportunity for undergraduates to engage in the rigor of research. According to the Council on Undergraduate Research, the benefits of scholarly activity at this level include increased student retention, the creation of an information-literate workforce, and the development of a culture of innovation — all of which are central to UNLV’s mission and vision.

OCLC

UNLV University Libraries were recently invited to join Online Computer Library Center (OCLC) Research, a special collaborative dedicated to identifying technological challenges within libraries and providing the information that helps libraries enhance their services.

Nationally recognized and identified for cutting-edge work and innovative technologies that have transformed the field, UNLV University Libraries join a prominent group of participating libraries that includes Oxford and Yale.

“From time to time, those of us in OCLC Research who are focused on the institutions engaged in the OCLC Research Library Partnership ask ourselves which institutions we think should be in the partnership,” OCLC Research’s invitation letter noted. “For some time, the UNLV University Libraries have been on our (very short!) list.”
