STUDENT NEWS: History major takes home 1st place in student book collection

History major Kirsten Moore ('11) took first place in the first annual student book collection contest for her 46 volume collection, “Combining Science and Humanities.”

Kirsten received a certificate and $250.

This makes her eligible to compete in the National Collegiate Book Collection Contest co-sponsored by the Antiquarian Booksellers of America (ABAA) and the Special Collections Division of the Library of Congress.

The library will put her collection on display in the library lobby and her essay and annotated bibliography will be posted on the special collections website as an example for future entries.
