Langenheim Memorial Library to present eighth annual library research awards

GREENVILLE, Pa.—Thiel College’s Langenheim Memorial Library will present the eighth annual Library Research Awards and The Professor Evelyn C. Baer Exemplary Writing Awards at 4 p.m. Nov. 3 in the Stamm Lecture Hall of the James Pedas Communication Center.

The Library Research Awards recognize and reward excellent research skills and student scholarship, Director of the Langenheim Memorial Library Allen Morrill said. The awards also promote library instruction and collaboration between librarians and faculty. The Professor Evelyn C. Baer Exemplary Writing Awards separately recognize excellence in student writing.

“This ceremony closes the loop nicely on the work that we do to engage the campus community with regard to research and writing,” Morrill said. “It gives us the chance to recognize the collaborative work between the faculty, students and library staff.”

Any faculty member who has participated in a library instruction session during the most recent fall or current spring semester is eligible to nominate one student per class taught by a librarian. Winning students present their research during the awards ceremony.
