Library Competition

Announcing the 16th Annual Competition for Best Research Papers

Don’t forget the library’s annual competition for Best Research Papers, to be awarded in Spring 2009 at the annual Library Day event.

Prizes will be awarded for papers judged to be the best of 2008. Papers written in the winter, spring, summer, and fall semesters of 2008 qualify.

The goal of this competition is to stimulate the creative use of library resources, including those of the Hunter archives and the research facilities of the Center for Puerto Rican Studies. Winning papers will be thoroughly researched, well written, and properly documented.

Barnes & Noble Gift Certificates of $100.00 and $50.00 each will be given in separate categories for (1) 100 level, (2) other undergraduate, and (3) graduate research papers. All departments and special programs in the college may participate. No more than three papers may be submitted for one course. Theses are excluded. 

The deadline is Tuesday, January 13, 2009. Only papers submitted by course instructors will be eligible for awards. Papers should be sent to Tony Doyle at the Hunter College Library with a note giving the course name, number and semester (Winter, Spring, Summer, or Fall 2008). Submissions should also include students’ phone numbers and email addresses. There is no special format, and submitting the papers is sufficient statement of recommendation. A faculty panel will select the winners. Awards will be presented at the college-wide Hunter Library Day reception in the spring of 2009.

Faculty sponsors of winning candidates will also be formally recognized for their support in this common effort to promote the research and writing skills of Hunter students.
