  • “I wish I would have emailed the library sooner, they were so helpful!” -B2B team member
  • "My entire journal began in the Innovation Scholars Class where Dave Morrison taught us about intellectual property, and then further agreed to teach me on-on-one how to search the United States Patent and Trademark Office database. This is literally when I conceived the idea for my company" -Alex Carr, former Innovation Scholar and current member of the Utah Foundry
  • “The library and its resources have been an invaluable resource... [The librarians are] really positive and encouraging towards student innovation and on multiple occasions taught us how and where to find the information we needed… [they] were key in understanding the disease state fundamentals which was our springboard to creating a portable and cost effective therapy for the developing world that prevents precancerous lesions from ever turning into full blown cervical cancer.” - CinLuma, 2015 overall Bench-2-Bedside competition winner
  • "We established an online system to track team progress via the university's Instructure CANVAS. Team contact and submission have moved substantially smoother. Thank you to Jean Shipman and the Library Innovation Team for making this system possible." -Patrick Loftus, former President of Bench-2-Bedside.
  • "The project is going well and I have been able to find some very helpful articles. Thank you very much for helping me and providing the information you did, it was very helpful to my research." -Bench-2-Bedside team member
