What is the Celebration of Research?

Lakeland Library is proud to present the Celebration of Research, an annual spring event designed to support and reward students who are interested in showcasing their research projects in a multidisciplinary setting. Students will be asked to expand upon and demonstrate knowledge of their research projects during a poster presentation session. Presentations will be judged, and gift cards will be awarded to the first, second, and third place posters during the event reception. Funding provided by the Lakeland Foundation.
