“An inquiry or investigation conducted by an undergraduate student that makes an original, intellectual, or creative contribution to the discipline.” – Council on Undergraduate Research Undergraduate research defined
“It seems to me what is called for is an exquisite balance between two conflicting needs: the most skeptical scrutiny of all hypotheses that are served up to us and at the same time a great openness to new ideas. Obviously those two modes of thought are in some tension. But if you are able to exercise only one of these modes, whichever one it is, you’re in deep trouble.” – Carl Sagan, "The Burden of Skepticism," Skeptical Inquirer 12 (1987).
Scholarly communication and publishing instruction
“In order for academic libraries to demonstrate alignment with and impact on institutional outcomes, librarians must accelerate the transition to a more open system of scholarship and transform student learning, pedagogy, and instructional practices through creative and innovative collaborations.” – Intersections of Scholarly Communication and Information Literacy: Creating Strategic Collaborations for a Changing Academic Environment
