Honors Students Invited to Attend Online Thesis Open House Events
The Office of Scholarly Communications and the Honors College invite all honors undergraduate students to an online open house. There are three opportunities to attend: April 9 on Twitter, April 28 on Facebook, and April 29 on Twitter. All sessions will be held from 2 to 4 p.m. Students can virtually drop in to learn about the University of Arkansas' institutional repository, ScholarWorks@UARK, and receive information about submitting their thesis. No appointment is necessary.
"We are excited about this opportunity to meet with students that could use some encouragement on their journey to write their thesis and share a great opportunity by submitting their thesis to ScholarWorks@UARK," said Cedar Claire Middleton, institutional repository coordinator.
The Office of Scholarly Communications is jointly sponsored by the University Libraries and the Office for Research and Innovation. ScholarWorks@UARK highlights a growing collection of student work, faculty publications, presentations and teaching materials. The U of A is committed to disseminating its research and scholarship as widely as possible.
