The Ohio University Libraries will award four prizes to participants of the 2013 Ohio University Student Expo. At the Expo, students from across the university present the results of their original research and creative projects. Each year, the Libraries offer awards in four categories: undergraduate, graduate, library affiliate (including student employees and students related to full time library staff members) and Librarian’s Choice, chosen the day of the expo. The awards go to students who demonstrate exceptional use of library resources in their research and creative endeavors. The winning presentations will be displayed in the library after the event.
In 2012, topics of the winning presentations included research on broadband access in the Appalachian region, the online presence of non-profit organizations promoting Chinese culture in the US, Palestinian literature, and solid state lighting as a tool for making Ohio University more green.
All students registered for the Expo will receive an email with application information for the Libraries’ awards, but participants may also apply directly online as well.
In addition to sponsoring these awards, the Libraries are also pleased to support the Student Expo through sponsorship of the t-shirts that all participants will receive.
We look forward to seeing the broad range of research topics presented at this year’s expo.
