UBC Library gives inaugural award for communicating research

The UBC Library will be inaugurating the UBC Library Innovative Dissemination of Research Award, which will honour students, faculty and staff whose creative use of new tools and technologies are expanding the boundaries of research and enhancing the impact of research findings.

The first winner will be selected by the University Librarian and members of the Library’s Scholarly Communications Committee, and announced during Celebrate Research Week in early March.
