This presentation describes the development of the Undergraduate Research Fair at York University as the broader context to York's first Information Literacy Award.

We discuss how this award, as part of a grander multidisciplinary Fair, provides students with the opportunity to showcase their research, and it provides librarians insight into students' academic literacy skills.
