The projects below are the creative accomplishments of students who were awarded an opportunity to work under the Watkinson Library's Creative Fellowships program for undergraduates. The vision for this program is to create support for self-directed students to explore the collections in the Watkinson, encounter an item or a group of items that spark inspiration, and engage with that material to produce something new.

The following video provides an introduction to the program and highlights projects from its first semester.
