Collegiate Book Collecting Contest 2011

The Antiquarian Booksellers' Association of America (ABAA), the Fellowship of American Bibliophilic Societies (FABS), the Center for the Book and the Rare Books and Special Collections Division (the Library of Congress) are proud sponsors of the 2011 National Collegiate Book Collecting Contest. The Kislak Foundation has given generous support.  

Entries for this year's competition must be submitted by June 3, 2011. Contestants must be the top prize-winner of an officially sanctioned American collegiate book collecting contest held during the 2010-2011 academic year. However, if a student collector's institution does not offer a book collecting contest, we are also accepting direct submissions.

Prizes will be awarded to both the winning students and their institutions' library. The Library of Congress will host the awards ceremony and an accompanying lecture on book collecting in the fall of 2011.
