Three UGA professors have been named the inaugural recipients of UGA Libraries’ Fairchild-Holcomb Awards for Innovation in the Humanities. The seed grants, totaling $8,600, will kick-start projects aimed at creating educational materials and a podcast or documentary drawing upon archival materials from UGA’s Special Collections Libraries.
The University of Georgia Libraries are pleased to announce the naming of three new leaders who join University Librarian and Associate Provost Toby Graham in providing direction-setting and oversight for the libraries.
Newest to UGA is Sara Wright who started her role as Associate University Librarian for Learning Services and Academic Engagement in January. Wright formerly served as director of Cornell University’s Mann & Science Cluster Libraries, and her career at Cornell included stints as Academic Technology Librarian; Head of User Services and Engagement; and Head of Learning, Spaces, and Technology.
As UGA students and faculty set their 2024 New Year’s resolutions, we wanted to remind you that UGA Libraries have the resources and services to help you reach your academic goals. Through the Libraries, you can access tools to enhance your research, take your projects to the next level, and reach your next steps.
Here are a few examples of how we can help you achieve your 2024 resolutions:
Get started early on research for my thesis or publication.
A number of UGA Libraries will operate under limited hours during the intersession period between the fall and spring semesters, with all locations closed for winter break beginning Dec. 24, reopening Jan. 3.
Intersession hours will be in place at the Main Library, McBay Science Library, and Miller Learning Center beginning Wednesday, Dec. 14, which means that the locations will not be open for the usual night hours. The MLC will be closed during weekends, and all locations will be closed on Sundays until classes resume on Jan. 9.
Need help with your research? Librarians and research experts at the University of Georgia are hosting the virtual Spring into Research series to provide students with the tools they need to research, write papers and dissertations, and present their projects.
Students can sign up for any or all of the 12 individual workshops offered Monday, March 21 through Friday March, 25 via Zoom.
UGA Libraries will be open and ready to serve the campus community throughout the summer. Librarians, archivists and staff will be available for help, research consultations and other activities — both in person and online — for students, faculty, and others, whether they are taking summer classes, preparing for the fall semester, working on independent projects, or have other needs.
UGA students can earn more than an A by meeting with a librarian. They can also win some cash, thanks to the Libraries’ Undergraduate Research Awards.
With a top prize of $800, the awards provide an extra incentive for students to sign up for a free online research consultation with a librarian. Students are eligible to enter the contest for their work on any research project, including a policy paper, a scientific study, a music composition, a thesis, whether it is for a class or not.
All of the tools that students need to write dynamic papers and create innovative projects will be on display in a series of workshops from the University of Georgia Libraries.
In the Spring into Research workshop series, librarians and staff will lead virtual discussions on navigating library resources, from the latest online journals to historical material held in digital archives, as well as using citation management software and technologies available for data visualization, map-making, virtual reality, and more.
At UGA Libraries, we ask that students and patrons remain curious and courteous, as the coronavirus pandemic continues.
All staff and visitors are required to wear masks, in accordance with the University System of Georgia policy in place since the buildings reopened in summer 2020. This includes all open study areas and group studying at the Main Library, Science Library, Miller Learning Center, Carnegie Library, Special Collections Libraries, and branch locations for art, music, and curriculum materials.
Need help navigating the library and other relevant resources? The UGA Libraries are here to help! Spring into Research sessions will familiarize you with the tools and services available to help you with your research. Whether you need tips finding research for your literature review or are looking for new technologies to bolster your existing research, we have a session for you!
All sessions will be via Zoom, and registration is required. Check out the class descriptions and register online at our website: https://guides.libs.uga.edu/SIR2021
