Deadline extended for Charleston Photo Contest!

How does your library support research

in new or unique ways?


Talking is not always shushed in the Kathryn A. Martin Library at the University of Minnesota Duluth. Instead, students have many options to work independently and/or collaboratively.

The 2016 Charleston Photo Contestnow ending May 13, gives you a chance to attend the upcoming Charleston Conference and express how your library helps connect researchers with the information they need.

As you can see, we’ve gotten some fantastic submissions so far and are looking forward to seeing even more!

As a reminder, to participate, academic librarians in the US and Canada are invited to send a photo that responds to the question, “How does your library support research in new or unique ways?” The first-place winner will receive a grant for  a voucher for registration at the 2016 Charleston Conference as well as $500 for travel-related expenses, and five second-place winners will each receive a $50 Amazon gift card.


Mercy College Library acquired a poster printer to support and advance student research. The librarians partner with students from initial template creation, through the research process, to the final citation. Students have proudly presented their posters at national and regional conferences.
