Reflective Practice

Liaisons work to build a community of practice around information literacy and its related technologies. This involves participating in an ongoing reflective practice which invites the wider university, profession, and community to join that reflection. It is our hope that, by sharing our scholarship and our assessment projects, we offer engaging entry points to the conversation.

We also showcase the outstanding research of our students and faculty in order to bring together Loyola's diverse activities in this arena. In doing so, we suggest the synergy possible in discovering shared questions, concerns, methods, literature, data, theories, applications, and other approaches, while still honoring what makes each of us unique as researchers.

In particular, we recognize students for their research endeavors each year. The Monroe Library Student Research Competition (MLSRC) is our annual research competition for students of all levels, from freshman to graduate. Each spring we select as many as four recipients to recognize for their outstanding research completed during the previous calendar year. Winners receive a cash prize and recognition in several outlets, including the library's newsfeed.
