Cayuga Community College Library Research Award

Purpose: To encourage and recognize student achievement in information literacy as evidenced in a research project submitted to a credit-bearing course offered by Cayuga Community College.

Award: The recipient is awarded $200, and has his or her name inscribed on a plaque in the Library.

Award Date: The award is given annually, after the spring semester.

Eligibility: Cayuga faculty may submit up to three (3) student research projects per course section after obtaining the student's permission to do so. Each research project submitted must be for a Cayuga Community College class completed during the current academic year. A student who would like to have a project submitted should contact the faculty member who assigned the project. 

How to Enter: A print or electronic copy of the research project is submitted to the Library. Each project must include a completed submission form along with a copy of the assignment for which the paper was written. Student identification is covered before projects are reviewed by members of the evaluation committee.

Selection Process: Each research project is measured against these specific information literacy competencies: 

  • a focused topic or thesis statement
  • use of varied and carefully selected sources of information
  • logical analysis and presentation of information
  • correct and consistent use of a citation style

Selection Committee: The committee consists of the Cayuga Community College librarians.

Deadline for submission: End of the Spring semester
