Karen M. Russ Memorial Award

The Ottenheimer Library invites UA Little Rock students to apply for the Karen Russ Memorial Award for Excellence in Research.  The award amount is $500 and can be used for any education-related expenses, such as books, fees, room and board, etc. To be eligible for this award, you must use, apply, or visualize government data in your research project that will be presented during the 2023 UA Little Rock Student Research and Creative Works Expo on April 21, 2023.

The Ottenheimer Library established the Karen Russ Memorial Award for Excellence in Research in honor of our late colleague, Karen Russ. Karen served as the government documents librarian for over 20 years and assisted UA Little Rock students and faculty in research, specializing in government information, data, and statistics.

We invite you to submit an application for the award. As part of the application process, a list of resources must be submitted, formatted in APA Style. As part of the citation, a direct link to the data/information is required and will be used by the award committee to verify the resources used. Applications are due by March 17, 2023.
