2018 Research Grant Winners
The Council of Atlantic University Libraries / Conseil des bibliothèques universitaires de l’Atlantique (CAUL-CBUA) is pleased to announce the winners of it's 2018 Collaborative Research Grant – Nicole Carter and Mikayla Redden!
Nicole Carter, Reference and Research Librarian at the Saint Mary’s University Patrick Power Library, and Mikayla Redden, Librarian at Centennial College Libraries, will be awarded $1,000 to help support their project, Student Library Employees: What Are Their Career Plans and What Influenced Those Plans?
In their proposal, Nicole and Mikayla propose to explore the career goals of student employees, as well as the role their employment might have on their future career selection. Their focus is on visible minority undergraduate and college students, with a particular focus on librarianship as a career. Their hope is that through understanding these motivations and influences, we might better position librarianship as an attractive career path for students.
The CAUL-CBUA Collaborative Research Grant is intended to encourage collaborative research by librarians and staff working in academic libraries in the region through projects which involve structured, evidence-based research. We are pleased to continue offering support to researchers in the region and look forward to the results of Nicole and Mikayla's study.
