Graduate Student Best Research Poster Award

The Library now sponsors a Graduate Student Research Award for graduate students presenting the best poster presentation of their research. The first award was presented in March 2011 at UTM's Graduate Student Research Conference. See our Library Blog for further details of this celebratory event for graduate students and faculty research and excellence.

Research Opportunities Program (ROP)

ROP is a superb method through which to engage students experientially in their learning. If you are interested in collaborating with a Librarian for an ROP, please contact either your Liaison Librarian or Ian Whyte, Associate Librarian, Teaching & Learning. Further information about the program is available on the ROP website.
