In partnership with the Division of Research and Graduate Studies , the UNLV Libraries are pleased to sponsor the Libraries' Award for Undergraduate Research. These awards recognize excellence in undergraduate research projects that incorporate the use of University Libraries' collections and demonstrate sophisticated information literacy skills on the part of the undergraduate researcher. The award review committee considers the product of the research, but focuses on the research process: the demonstration of library research skills, adept use of library resources, and reflection upon the strategies utilized to investigate a research problem. Winners receive a $1000 prize and public recognition of their excellent work.
