Are you an avid collector of books, manuscripts, or other materials found in libraries? If so, consider submitting an essay about your collection for a chance to win the Elmer Adler Undergraduate Book Collecting Prize!

Endowed from the estate of Elmer Adler, who for many years encouraged the collecting of books by Princeton undergraduates, this prize is awarded annually to an undergraduate student, or students, who, in the opinion of a committee of judges, have shown the most thought and ingenuity in assembling a thematically coherent collection of books (or other materials usually collected by libraries). The essay should convey a strong sense of the student’s motivations for collecting and what their particular collection means to them personally. The deadline for submissions is Tuesday, December 1, 2015. For more information and complete rules, go to: https://graphicarts.princeton.edu/2015/10/12/attention-princeton-students/.
