University Libraries Undergraduate Research Contest Call for Submissions

The University Libraries Undergraduate Research Contest recognizes and rewards outstanding research conducted by undergraduate students at the University of Missouri. Undergraduates in any discipline are invited to enter the contest, which will be judged by a cross-disciplinary panel of librarians.

One $500 scholarship, and one $250 scholarship will be awarded to an individual or group project. The winners will have their projects archived in MOspace, MU’s digital repository.

The research project can be a traditional research paper, a musical composition, a work of art, a video, a web page, or other creative work. It has to have been researched using the resources of the MU Libraries. The project will be judged primarily on sophistication of the research process and the materials used (as documented in the Research Process Statement).

Examples of projects:

  • A set design for theater where the student researched period-appropriate furniture, lighting, and architecture to create the perfect backdrop
  • A documentary film for class that researches the history of race relations at MU using library and archive materials
  • Composition of a piece of music created in the style of a famous composer informed by research into their style, skills, etc. through library materials
  • A business plan for a new company or product showing market need, demographics of customers, patents, design, etc. informed by research using library materials
  • A political science paper comparing the rise of fascism today with that in the early 20th century
  • A parody of a famous piece of literature or any original piece of fiction for which the author did library research for their setting, criticisms, etc.

The deadline for submission of all materials is January 31, 2020. Winners will be announced in February 2020.

Questions? Contact Gwen Gray at grayg@missouri.edu.

Endnote is Free for Mizzou Students

Citing your work and creating reference lists are a necessary evil when researching. It’s evil because you have to keep track of all the resources you use, learn many citation styles, and then go through your paper to type in text citations. A way to combat this evil is using Endnote.

Endnote is a citation management system that does all the things for you. You can import citations directly from the database and you can easily switch citation styles. Endnote also cites while you write, allowing you to insert a citation as you type and automatically creating a reference list.

As a Mizzou student, you can download Endnote for free through DoIT’s Self Portal. If you need assistance, we have step by step directions here.

Once you have Endnote on your computer, make sure to take a look at our Endnote Guide for tips and tricks on how to use the program.
