Of Note

Students with book collections that have a special significance to them are invited to enter the 31st annual Book Collection Contest. The contest, sponsored by the Friends of the UCSC Library, is open to all undergraduate and graduate students at UCSC. Cash prizes of $300, $200, and $100 will be awarded to the winners, and winning collections will be exhibited in McHenry Library. Those interested in entering the contest must submit an essay and a bibliography of at least 25 titles owned by the student. The essay should describe the history and scope of the collection, its significance to the owner, and titles of particular importance. An awards ceremony will be held Thursday, April 17, to honor the winners. Entries must be submitted by 5 p.m. on Wednesday, April 2, to Beth Remak-Honnef at the McHenry Library reference desk. Contest details are available at the reference desk. For more information, call (408) 459-2459 or e-mail remak@cats.ucsc.edu.
