The duPont-Ball Library announces the opening of competition for the library’s Evans C. Johnson Research Prize and the R. Neil Scott Research Prize. The contest is sponsored by the Library to encourage the thorough, effective, creative, and ethical uses of research resources. $200 in prizes may be awarded for each prize.
Both Research Prizes are open to all students who completed a research paper in ENGL 101, or First-Year Seminar (FSEM) during the last calendar year (spring, summer, or fall semesters, 2013).
Complete details and entry information can be found on the Library Research Prize page. The deadline for submissions is 4:00 pm on Friday, March 28, 2014.
The winner(s) will be recognized by the Library and listed in the Academic Honors Convocation program. Winning papers will be featured on the library’s website. Please contact Laura Kirkland (822-4027, email@example.com) with any questions.
Spring Break is still a few weeks away, and those assignments keep piling up. Need a little stress relief now? Come to the duPont-Ball Library on Monday 17 February from 10:00 am – 4:00 pm and visit the Therapy Dogs. These are specially trained dogs of all types and sizes that loved to be petted, scratch, and played with. All dogs are guaranteed to be adorable.
This Friday 14 February from 9:00 am – 2:30 pm in the Rinker Auditorium Stetson faculty will be presenting on their favorite learning technologies. Hear about how to use 3D printing, Word Press, e-books, clickers, and so much more in your classes. Full schedule is available here.
The duPont-Ball library was a proud recipient of a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Gilder Lehrman Foundation to develop programming for the documentary series Created Equal: America’s Civil Rights Struggle. The first programming events will be held in late January and mid-February. Cultural credit is available, and all events are open to the public. For more information see the library Created Equal page.
