2012 USU Faculty Author Spotlight

The Merrill-Cazier Library is showcasing all of the 2012 Faculty Authors and their books in the Richard Schockmel USU Collections Room on the 2nd floor of the Library. We are proud of USU's faculty authors! This week we are highlighting:

Joyce Kinkead, Professor, Department of English Kinkead, Joyce & Blockus, Linda, 2012. Undergraduate Research Offices and Programs: Models and Practices. Washington, DC: Council on Undergraduate Research.

In 2000, the Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR) published How to Develop and Administer Institutional Undergraduate Research Programs, by Toufic Hakim. Although only 75 pages, Hakims book had a powerful influence on developing undergraduate research programs. This book has much the same aim-to provide models of undergraduate research programs that can instruct and inspire. It is the next-generation reference book and manual for those who are seeking to start or enhance existing undergraduate research programs, drawing on the wisdom and experience of more than 25 contributors.
