So how IS that E&D final project coming along? AS IF you need more pressure right now, right? Well, you should know that your project really NEEDS to be good. And the library is here to provide you with a little motivation of the cha-ching variety.
That’s right, we are proud to announce the James J. Kopp First-year Research Awards. Two first-year students who submit research projects produced in the spring 2012 semester of Exploration and Discovery, which exemplify excellence in the discovery and use of library and scholarly resources, will win this award. I know what you’re thinking– WHAT fantastic thing will they win? Well, do you see that owl holding a check for two hundred smackers? So big deal, you say, they get an owl holding a check? I think you are missing the point. Forget about the owl for a second, and concentrate on the check. That’s right, a check for $200 could be yours if you will stop procrastinating and get back to work on that research project. And when you are finished, submit an application here
. Who knows, if your project is extra specially good, we may even throw in the owl.
