How does your library support research in new or unique ways? (Prizes for top photos!)

how does your library support research (10)Every day, librarians help patrons find the information (and confidence) they need to tackle research projects. How are librarians addressing student and researchers’ diverse needs, and what do these strategies look like in action?

From now until April 23rd, send us a picture of how your library is supporting research in new or unique ways for a chance to win a travel grant to the 2016 Charleston Conference or one of five $50 Amazon gift cards. 

We’ll be more impressed by your institution’s support of research than your camera work, so feel free to send us regular photos off your smartphone or digital camera.

  • All 6 winners will have their entry photographs featured in the 2016 Charleston Conference’s photo-desk calendar (for calendar year 2017) which will be given to all conference attendees.
