Six University of Notre Dame undergraduate students received honors for excellence in research skills during the 10th annual Undergraduate Scholars Conference on Friday (May 5).
The students received the Undergraduate Library Research Award (ULRA), which honors individuals who conduct original research and demonstrate exemplary skills through their broad use of library resources, collections and services for their scholarly and creative works.
Sponsored by the Hesburgh Libraries and the Flatley Center for Undergraduate Scholarly Engagement, with support from other campus entities, the ULRA provides students with a network of support and offers inspiration to those beginning original research or capstone projects.
“The Hesburgh Libraries are committed to advancing undergraduate research and scholarship,” said Edward H. Arnold University Librarian Diane Parr Walker. “Through our services, programs and expertise, we are partners with students to build research skills and capabilities that are critical to academic success on campus and in the world beyond graduation.”
