Here at the library, we love research.

keep-calm-and-love-research-studies

It’s kind of our thing

But it’s also a thing that is not only important for us, but also the students of PC

Library-Day-One

So we want to know more about the research undergrads are doing

AND

We at the library, and the good folks at the Center for Engaged Learning want to reward you for your hard work!

2014 is the first year of the Phillips Memorial Library Undergraduate Craft of Research Prize, and we want to hear from you!

All we need from you is:

  1. 1. A research paper (you were probably going to write one anyway–right?)
  2. 2. An annotated bibliography (again, you were probably already doing one–now just add annotations)
  3. 3. A 5-7 page essay describing your research process (everybody loves to talk about how smart they are, here’s your chance!)

That’s it!

Send that all to Andria Tieman: atieman@providence.edu by May 12th to enter, and you could be well on your way to being one of the first recipients of the Phillips Memorial Library Undergraduate Craft of Research Prize!  In addition to a cash prize, winning papers will be publisher in PC’s Digital Commons right along with the works of PC’s scholars.

Everything you need to know–including research tips, citation help, how to write an annotated bibliography, etc., is located here: http://providence.libguides.com/research_prize

Spring is almost here.  Many of you could be traveling this week to warmer climates, good decision after this stormy cold winter!  Whether you are traveling someplace warm or just home to relax when you return to campus we will be one week closer to spring.  The clocks have been set forward and the temperatures is beginning to rise!

While you are waiting for the trees, shrubs and flowers to bloom you can take a look at the e-book Flowers.  You will find paintings of flowers by Monet, Picasso, Renoir, Van Gogh and many more.  Enjoy!

Spring forward into daylight savings time, the sun will set later and the days will seem longer.  Get out and enjoy Rhode Island. Check out The State of Rhode Island Division of Parks and Recreation to explore this great state!

Do you like daffodils?  During the month of April Blithewold Mansion Gardens, & Arboretum in Bristol RI has Daffodil Days, if you haven’t been there it is a sight to see!
