The CWRU contest is one of many taking place at universities across the country as part of the National Collegiate Book Collecting Contest, sponsored by the Antiquarian Booksellers’ Association of America. Katherine Rogers, the CWRU grand prize winner, will advance to the national competition.
The judges of this year’s contest consisted of highly experienced book collectors and librarians. All of the judges were extremely impressed with the quality of the student collections they reviewed. All six of the prize winners and honorable mentions submitted thoughtful and creative collections. We are so grateful to all the students who participated in the contest.
KSL will hold a reception honoring the contest winners on Friday, April 28, at 4pm in the Dampeer room. The reception is open to the public. Refreshments will be served, and attendees will have an opportunity to view books from the winning collections.
Kelvin Smith Library wishes to thank Julia Gelfand and David Lang for their generous sponsorship of this contest. We also thank our contest judges: Bill Claspy, Julia Gelfand, Susan Hanes, Bob Rawson, and Tom Slavin.
