Each summer, WIC staff and librarians from many parts of Penn Libraries have the distinct pleasure of helping the McNair Scholars cohort with their summer research projects. Last year, the students explored creation of research posters in addition to live presentations (with PowerPoint). This year, that trend continued. Nine McNair Scholars spent many days this summer in Van Pelt mastering reference managers and presentation software. Our staff helped students design, and refine, their posters, and we are glad to present a few examples in the 2012 McNair Student Poster Showcase. We look forward to assisting the nine student researchers as they continue to explore these topics over the upcoming school year.
