During Spring Semester 2014, The Richard J. Daley Library invited UIC students to create videos showcasing the library and its services. The four-minute videos share a look at the student resources and research services in the UIC University Library. In its first year, the annual contest gave students a chance to win prizes from the UIC bookstore, with a top prize of a $500 gift certificate. After much deliberation, a panel of judges selected the top three entries. Congratulations to this year’s winners! Check out the winning entries below:
