2018 Library Research Awards
This spring the AULA Library will award the fifth annual Library Research Award. A prize of $800 is awarded to two graduate students and one undergraduate in recognition of the exemplary use of library resources in their research papers. The award is funded by the AULA Library Council and Amy Smith, an Antioch College alumna and librarian.
Library Director Lisa Lepore encourages students to be critical of their sources, to utilize library resources, valuing scholarship in books and peer reviewed journals. In a time when information is at our fingertips via web searches and social media, the award asks Antioch students to be discerning. Is material is well-researched and hard-earned or presented as fact but unsupported by research or experience, embellished, or simply fake.
“We want to honor students’ work and support them in thinking creatively and dynamically as participants in the web of knowledge. We encourage students to utilize academic scholarship while also valuing knowledge that exists outside of formalized academic areas.”
