The University  Libraries want to recognize your  research skills!

We are soliciting submissions for our Undergraduate Research Award.  This $500 prize is given in recognition of an outstanding undergraduate research project that best demonstrates the ability to locate, select, and synthesize information from scholarly resources and uses those resources in the creation of an original research project in any media.  Any paper or project completed by an undergraduate in the Spring, Summer, or Fall semesters of 2014 is eligible. Applicants must be enrolled at UNCG in the Spring 2015 semester.  It is open to all undergraduate students. 

If you've completed a project that meets these requirements please submit it.  You will need a letter of support from a faculty member.

Canvas eReserves moving to Box



University Libraries Switching Canvas eReserves to Box



Beginning in the spring 2015 semester, eReserves for use in Canvas will be stored in Box, an online file storage service available to all UNCG users.  Library staff will create course folders in Box containing eReserve readings then share the folders with the course instructors.  

Instructors will be responsible for adding the eReserve folders to their course.   They will receive an email that contains an embed link for the folders and a link to the Instructions for Adding eReserves to Courses in Canvas.  

By storing eReserves in Box, the files are no longer using any of the storage capacity provided by Canvas for each course.  Additionally, an expiration date can be set for each course folder to expire automatically at the end of each term.  The expiration date being used for spring 2015 folders is May 8, 2015.  

No changes are being made to the Blackboard eReserve process.
