The ALA/ACRL/RBMS Exhibition Awards Committee is pleased to announce that submissions for the 2020 Katharine Kyes Leab & Daniel J. Leab American Book Prices Current Exhibition Awards are being accepted until Tuesday, October 15, 2019. The awards are given annually in recognition of excellence in the publication of catalogs and brochures that accompany exhibitions of library and archival materials, as well as for digital exhibitions of such materials. The prizes are administered and awarded by the Exhibition Awards Committee. For more information, and a list of previous winners, please see http://www.ala.org/acrl/awards/publicationawards/leabawards.
Submissions of printed materials (4 copies of each catalog or brochure) must be postmarked by October 15. For digital exhibitions, only an entry form is required. The form should be submitted online by October 15.
After judging is completed and the awards announced, the printed materials are sent to The Bancroft Library at UC Berkeley and the Grolier Club in New York City. This constitutes a duplicate archive of the self-selected best work in the field.
We welcome any questions potential submitters may have, and look forward to your entries!
