UNDERGRADUATE RESEARCH POSTER SESSION 
The Harold B. Lee Library science librarians are sponsoring an undergraduate student research poster competition during the month of October.  All undergraduates involved in research with a faculty
UGRAD RESEARCH POSTER SESSION (cont.)

mentor in the College of Physical and Mathematical Sciences are invited to submit a 50 inch by 40 inch (MAXIMUM SIZE) poster for display to the Science & Engineering Help Desk on the 2nd Floor of the HBLL.  The deadline for turning in posters is September 30.

All researchers and mentors will be expected to attend a special poster session in the HBLL on October 13, 2016 from 2:00-4:00 pm to discuss their research results with visitors.  Posters will be judged by HBLL science librarians and the top three will be awarded BYU campus gift cards of $200, $150, and $100.  Winners will also have their posters displayed by the Science & Engineering Help Desk along with a photograph of the presenter and his/her mentor. Students will be offered the opportunity to upload their posters to
ScholarsArchive, the library’s institutional repository, as a means to help them document their presentations with a hyperlink they could place in their resumes. Judging criteria will include content, appearance, and presentation.

Teaching Moment

For a very special assignment and inspired by the story of Alfred Kelly, Richard Watt reminded his students of the great visions that they should have for their futures.

"I was very impressed by the Alfred Kelly story. I shared that with my class the first day and told them they are fulfilling a prophecy. I assigned each one to take a selfie in front of the picture in the Wilkinson Center. What a blessing to see each of my students in front of that picture."
