The University Libraries Undergraduate Research Award--Get Inspired!

What does it take to win the University Libraries Undergraduate Research Award? For Mary Robinson, the first student to win the prize, it took a great subject, an encouraging professor, helpful librarians, and a lot of hard work. In this podcast, Kimberly Lutz interviews Mary to learn more about the paper on the legendary actress Sarah Bernhardt that won not only the libraries' award but many other accolades as well. Professor Woodworth, Theatre, joins the conversation to discuss the research process and why she nominated Mary last year.

Irma Minerva wants you to get inspired by Mary's story and apply for this year's award. The University Libraries Undergraduate Research Award is given in recognition of an outstanding UNCG undergraduate research project that best demonstrates the ability to locate, select, and synthesize information from library resources and uses those resources in the creation of an original research project in any media. The winning entry will receive a $500 cash prize funded by the University Libraries and awarded April 8, 2011 at the Undergraduate Honors Convocation.
