As a noted territorial archaeologist for the Caribbean basin, Katheryne (Kate) Willock had a deep appreciation for the importance of primary sources for research. Kate was an ardent supporter of the University Libraries and the impact the library has on student scholarship and success. Along with founding the Willock Graduate Assistantship program, Kate generously endowed the annual Library Research Awards.
The Katheryne B. Willock Library Research Awards allow us to recognize graduate and undergraduate students who have made extensive and innovative use of the library information resources and services in support of their research. Recipients also demonstrate personal growth in learning and development of research skills that will help in their future career and studies.
