Kelvin Smith Library selects book collecting contest winners

Each year, Kelvin Smith Library Student Book Collecting Contest puts a spotlight on collections entrants have assembled to match their interests and passions.

This year’s winners are:

  • First place: Meghan Schill (graduate student: Department of History); A Case for Wider Recognition of Owen Wister
  • Second place: Anna O’Connell (graduate student: Department of Music); My International Treasure-Trove: Global Choral Compositions
  • Third place: Paul Abdullah (graduate student: Department of Music); Opera Librettos

Kelvin Smith Library Special Collections is particularly grateful to alumna Julia M. Gelfand (LYS ’77) for supporting the prizes for this contest.

Kelvin Smith Library thanks all of the students who submitted entries, and appreciated the creativity and passion with which they have assembled their collections.
