Student Research Conference: Support students by participating as audience members!

Friday, December 4th:  Sessions at 10, 11, 1, and 2.

Programs will be available in the Gallagher Room and posted in Penn Hall on Friday. Stop in when time allows.

Centered in the Gallagher Room in the Rollins Center, the event is structured like a professional research conference. Participants break out into panels, meeting in classrooms across campus. Presenters will each offer a five-minute overview of their findings, and then discuss those findings with one another and conference attendees.

Remember, behind great research are great libraries! The library at Bucks provided Information Literacy sessions and one-on-one research assistance throughout the semester. The Student Research Conference is an opportunity to see the final results of projects that utilized library services. Attend the conference and support the work of our wonderful, hardworking students!
