NOTE:   ACRLNY hosts a GROUP VIEWING of selected ACRL-National Webinars as part of our local Professional Development series.   This event is a local (Queens) ACRLNY-viewing of an ACRL-national webinar.


Undergraduate research is often conflated with standard end-of-semester research papers, but in fact, undergraduate research is one of several high-impact educational practices identified by George Kuh and the Association of American Colleges & Universities, and is increasingly seen as a vital part of the undergraduate experience. Research helps students connect the dots between their interests, general education courses, writing requirements, and major coursework, and increases learning, retention, enrollment in graduate education, and engagement in future work.

The library can become part of the core infrastructure of the undergraduate research experience. Library research programs can be from any discipline, can be interdisciplinary, can be any high-impact format, and can reflect upon an institution’s own history, traditions, and tensions.

Our presenters will discuss the process, issues, and ultimate practice recommendations from three of the case studies covered in their recent ACRL book, Undergraduate Research and the Academic Librarian: Case Studies and Best Practices: developing archival literacy and conducting original research in the archives at Purdue, subject specialized data management at Carleton College, and first year undergraduate research experiences at the University of Oklahoma. Presenters will engage the audience with open questions and polls to invite participation and information sharing about undergraduate research.

Learning Outcomes

  • Attendees will be introduced to three different kinds of research programs for undergraduate researchers and discuss how they were implemented and recommendations for incorporating them at your library.

  • Attendees will gain new ideas and tools for building faculty relationships, developing programs for undergraduate researchers, and collaboration with librarians in their organizations.

  • Attendees will be invited to share their own experiences with collaboration and instruction for undergraduate researchers and discuss new methods and strategies.
