BUFFALO, N.Y. — The Poetry Collection of the University at Buffalo Libraries has received an honorable mention in the 2010 Katharine Kyes Leab and Daniel J. Leab “American Book Prices Current” Exhibition Awards competition.
Michael Basinski, PhD, curator of the UB Poetry Collection, said the collection is being recognized for “Discovering James Joyce: The University at Buffalo Collection,” the illustrated print catalogue edited by James Maynard, PhD, the collection’s assistant curator.
The awards will be presented on June 27 during the RBMS Annual Membership Meeting and Information Exchange, at the ALA Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C.
The catalogue accompanied a major 2009 exhibition of the same name mounted at UB’s Anderson Gallery.
The Leab awards are given by the Rare Books and Manuscripts Section (RBMS) of the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL), a major division of the American Library Association (ALA) for catalogues associated with library exhibitions in one of four cost categories. One honorable mention was made, as well, to the UB Poetry Collection.
