Robert V. Williams Graduate Student Research Award / Call For Nominations & Submissions

The purpose of the Robert V. Williams Graduate Student Research Award is to encourage graduate students in the School of Library and Information Science to do research in the field of Library and Information Science.

The announcement is a call for submissions for this award. Nominations may be made by faculty or by self-submission. Deadline for receipt of the submitted papers is Feb. 24, 2007. Papers submitted may use any type of research methodology, but must be research oriented. The judging committee will determine whether a submitted paper meets this qualification. The complete product must be submitted to the Student Services Office by Feb. 24, 2007.

The Director of SLIS has appointed three faculty members to judge the submitted papers and to announce the winner(s), if any. Up to three awards (first place, second place, and third place) may be given annually to graduate students in SLIS. All currently enrolled students and previous semester graduates will be eligible to compete for the award. The awards (if any) will be given at the annual Dean’s Lecture. All submissions for the Robert V. Williams Graduate Student Research Award will also be considered for recommendation (upon consent of the author) to the annual Graduate Student Day Competitive awards of the USC Graduate School, provided they meet the requirements for that competition.

Certificates will be awarded to the winner(s) of the award and, as funds are available, a suitable monetary award.

For additional information or questions, please contact Carol Williams, Student Services Manager. Phone: 803-777-3887, or email,
