Van Pelt and Opie Library Blogs

Empowered by Information – Library Video & Writing Contest

We want to hear stories about your successful library research! Did the perfect research article that a librarian helped you find in a library database make all the difference in your poster presentation? Did you impress your supervisor by tracking down an industry standard for a project at your internship? Are your friends envious of those great historical photos a library staff member in the Archives helped you find for your dorm room?

We invite all current Michigan Tech students to submit a video OR written piece showing us the awesome ways you have thrived using the library’s information sources (e.g. journal articles, patents, standards, librarians, books) and win a cash prize!

Video Entries: 1st place – $300, 2nd place – $200, 3rd place – $100
Written Entries: 1st place – $200, 2nd place – $125, 3rd place – $75

Entries must be received by 11:59 pm, Sunday, April 21, 2013. Winners will be announced and contacted on Monday, April 29, 2013.

Want to submit a video entry but don’t have a video camera? The Library has video cameras available for checkout at the Library & IT Service Center.
