2017 Research Award Recipients

The Research Committee received several applications this year, and it was wonderful to read the varied topics being studied by New Jersey Librarians and Library scholars. It was truly a difficult choice to make, but the Research Committee members selected the two submissions below. Come hear them talk about their research during the College & University Section Awards held at the NJLA Conference on Wednesday, April 26th from 3:40pm to 4:30pm in Wildwood 6 & 7. We are looking forward to the Technology Award sharing the program with us.
