To commemorate Library Day, attendees are eligible to win door prizes that include ear buds, an mp3 player and an 8-gigabyte flash drive. Refreshments also will be served.

The annual Library Day activities help promote cultural thinking among undergraduate students and encourage usage of library resources.

The research contest was open to undergraduate students, who were encouraged to submit papers written for credit during the 2010 spring, summer or fall trimesters. Papers, which had to be eight to 20 pages in length, were judged on a point system and a range of criteria that required at least 75 percent of cited sources come from library databases or the Owens Library in-house collection.
