The Special Collections Research Center is pleased to announce the recipients of the Robert L. Platzman Memorial Fellowships for 2013. 

The Platzman Fellowship program provides funds for visiting researchers whose projects require on-site consultation of University of Chicago Library collections, primarily materials in the Special Collections Research Center. Support for beginning scholars is a priority of the program, as are projects that cannot be conducted without onsite access to the original materials, and where University of Chicago Library collections are central to the research.

 More information on the 2013 Platzman Fellows, including titles of their projects, is available on the Special Collections web site:  http://www.lib.uchicago.edu/e/scrc/about/platzmanfellowships.html
