Read the USC Librariesâ€™ and USC Undergraduate Writers Conferenceâ€™ 2012 OAPS Collection Online
An electronic version of USC's 2012 OAPS anthology is now available on the USC Libraries website.
Outstanding Academic Papers by Students (OAPS) is a collaborative, international program by academic research libraries to encourage, recognize, and preserve excellence in student scholarship. In 2010, USC became the first North American university to participate when the USC Libraries partnered with the USC School of Social Work to produce a collection of outstanding social work papers. In 2011, the USC Libraries showcased work by students from the USC Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences.
This year's collection consists of papers submitted through the USC Undergraduate Writers Conference and selected by a team of faculty, librarians, and student editors.
Representatives from other universities participating in OAPS received copies of the book in May at the program's annual conference, hosted this year by the USC Libraries. Student contributors have also received the book, and copies are available on the marble table on the first floor of Doheny Memorial Library.
