URWS Wins an Award!

 

 

 

The OSU Libraries and Press received the 2019 Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL) Instruction Section (IS) Innovation Award for its Undergrad Research and Writing Studio. The annual award recognizes a project that demonstrates creative, innovative or unique approaches to information literacy instruction or programming.

Per the American Library Association (ALA) announcement, "The annual award recognizes a project that demonstrates creative, innovative or unique approaches to information literacy instruction or programming ... The Undergrad Research and Writing Studio is focused on hands-on and experiential learning, with help delivered at the point of need. It has allowed librarians at the OSU Libraries and Press to reimagine the traditional one-shot in first-year composition and across the curriculum, while also enriching the learning environment and extending the reach and impact of the university Writing Center."
