Safer Together: An Archival Remix Contest
From 2018-2022, the City of Bloomington recorded over 400 reported collisions involving bikes or pedestrians (including scooters). That's too many!
IU Libraries Moving Image Archive invites YOU to create a short, compelling video using archival footage to raise awareness about street safety. Through a juried competition, awarded videos that meet contest criteria will win a prize of up to $2,000! Runner(s)-up will receive $500. Winning videos will be used in various IU ad campaigns starting in Fall 2023.
You don't have to be a Hollywood director, but you do have to be a student enrolled (full time or part time) at IU Bloomington.
You'll want to get started soon - the deadline is Sunday, May 21, 2023!
Undergrads: You could win $2000 for your research paper/project
Did you complete a great research paper or project in 2022, or do you know of an undergrad who did? The prestigious 2023 Sam Burgess Undergraduate Library Research Award is now open for applications! This year the IU Libraries will award two winners $2,000 each.
The Committee pays special attention to how the student used library resources to complete a project or paper as part of a class assignment. Along with the research project or paper as submitted for a grade in 2022, applicants submit a short essay describing their research strategy and how they used library resources. In addition, a faculty member submits a letter of recommendation for the student's work.
We are grateful to retired librarian Jo Burgess, the generous donor supporting this award.
The deadline to apply has been EXTENDED to Friday, March 24, 2023.
Celebrate Open Education
The IU Libraries Scholarly Communication Department welcomes nominations from all members of the Indiana University Bloomington community for its inaugural Open Educators Award! The award will be given to one or more instructors who use Open Educational Resources (OER) in their course(s). We want to recognize and celebrate instructors who are making their course materials as accessible as possible, advancing equity via cost savings for students, and enhancing student learning. Awardee(s) will receive a monetary award. Deadline: March 17.
Of related interest: Join us on Wednesday, April 5, from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. to learn about open course material options, including free resources that you can edit and enhance. The Open Education Week 2023 Showcase will be an opportunity to hear from instructors who have adopted open and affordable materials and learn more about how students received their new materials, along with a keynote by Amanda Hurford.
