Lighting the Fire: Gathering Fuel to Build an Undergraduate Research Program

Libraries continue to explore ways to be collaborators with undergraduate research experiences. For students to emerge as scholars, they must exhibit information literacy skills and learn how to enter their disciplinary conversations. However, based on the setup of undergraduate research programs, traditionally, libraries might only be used for its space and auxiliary resources. This presentation will showcase how an information literacy award, given to emerging student-scholars, helped to build a robust undergraduate research program across multi-campus library system that includes both large and small campus communities. In giving out this award, the library identified opportunities for intervention and became a key stakeholder in supporting undergraduate research across the Commonwealth.
