At the Heart of Learning: The Library Research Scholars and Adobe Scholars Program at the University of Miami Libraries pairs librarian faculty mentors with undergraduate researchers to provide a yearlong program of engagement with library resources, with the goal of creating an intellectual product on a topic of their own devising. In this webinar, the co-managers of the program, Ava Brillat and Lauren Fralinger, will detail the structure of the Library Research Scholars and Adobe Scholars program, the mentoring process, and the incorporation of ACRL’s Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education.
The Library’s Synergy with Campus Coordinators of Undergraduate Research / presented by Merinda Hensley, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
Campus coordinators of undergraduate research support the pedagogic mission of their institution with a driving commitment to the praxis of disciplinary research, through both specialized programs and course-based offerings. While there is abundant room for librarians to design a wide spectrum of support (e.g., instruction, collections, student symposiums and awards, publishing), how can we better align library support to the perceived (read: getting to know one another better) needs of undergraduate research coordinators? In this presentation, Merinda will discuss several intersections between the Library and the Illinois Office of Undergraduate Research including a lively discussion on refining the definition of undergraduate research, why analyzing results from two campus-wide surveys of the undergraduate researcher experience isn’t enough, and what happens when students do not own the data they want to publish in the institutional repository.
