Celebrating our 2023 Lang Prize Winners
Annual award recognizes undergraduates who make exceptional use of library resources
We are pleased to announce the 2023 winners of the library’s Lang Prize! Now in its seventh year, the Norma J. Lang Prize for Undergraduate Information Research recognizes students who make exceptional use of library resources and services — such as primary source materials and special collections, online databases and journal articles, interlibrary loan services, or consulting with a librarian.
Through their research, this year’s winners explored topics ranging from methods to expand multicultural education in counseling master’s programs to female weightlifters’ presentation of gender on Instagram, and from measuring mortality using epigenetic aging clocks to the Mediterranean diet’s influence on cardiovascular health.
The Lang Prize is supported by a bequest from the late Professor Emerita of Botany Norma J. Lang, who taught at UC Davis for nearly 30 years. The prize honors Professor Lang’s devotion to her students and love of the research process.
