The Library Prize for Undergraduate Research was established in 2004 to encourage the use of Library resources, to enhance the development of library research techniques, and to honor the best research projects produced each year by Temple University undergraduate students. Winning entries exhibited originality, depth, breadth, or sophistication in the use of library collections; exceptional ability to select, evaluate, synthesize, and utilize library resources in the creation of a project in any media; and evidence of personal growth through the acquisition of new found knowledge.
Launched in academic year 2015-16, the Livingstone Undergraduate Research Awards are Temple University Libraries’ reshaped, expanded, and improved initiative rewarding the best undergraduate work at the university. The Livingstone Awards address the depth and breadth of undergraduate research subjects, methods, and projects through five distinct categories:
humanities and social sciences
science, technology, engineering, and mathematical disciplines
creative works and media production
policy, practice, and public life
sustainability and the environment
The new awards were named to honor our generous donor, John H. Livingstone, SBM ‘49, who has supported undergraduate research through the original Library Prize and now Livingstone Awards for more than a decade. The sustainability and the environment award was established in the 2010-2011 academic year by Temple Libraries and Gale, a leading organization in e-research and educational publishing. It continues to be generously sponsored by Gale Cengage Learning. Papers and projects for all categories are selected each year to win $1000.
