The Robert B. and Blanche Campbell Student Book Collection Competition

Campbell Student Book Collection Competition

Honoring book culture in the digital age, the Robert B. and Blanche Campbell Student Book Collection Competition rewards UCLA graduate and undergraduate students who have assembled outstanding book collections. A total of nearly $4,000 in prizes is offered in ten categories. Students who have assembled collections representing personal interests or tied to their capstone, thesis, or creative projects are encouraged to submit entries.

Beginning in 2014, the awards ceremony has been combined with that of the Library Prize for Undergraduate Research.
