2011 LIRG/JIBS Student Awards - closing date is 13 May 2011.

The Library and Information Research Group (LIRG), in conjunction with
JIBS, awards a student research prize of £300 each year for a
research-based project. Each School of Library and Information Studies is
invited to nominate one of their students' projects for the award.

LIRG offers the prize to promote a greater awareness amongst students of
the importance of research and to facilitate the dissemination of the
results of outstanding projects. More information about the LIRG Award:
