Celebrating our 2024 Lang Prize Winners

We are pleased to announce the 2024 winners of the library’s Lang Prize! Now in its eighth 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.

Our eight prize winners were chosen from a record number of applicants. Through their research, they explored topics ranging from the poetry of John Ashbery to music therapy in healthcare, and from 19th-century French imperialism in Mexico to the relationship between childhood adversity and aging.

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.
