In partnership with the Division of Research and Graduate Studies, the UNLV Libraries are pleased to award these projects the Librariesâ€™ Award for Undergraduate Research. These awards recognize excellence in undergraduate research projects that incorporate the use of University Librariesâ€™ 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.
