Rose Book-Collecting Prize

The purpose of the Prize shall be to encourage students to assemble coherent collections of books, which can be on any topic, from any period, or of any genre. The entry for the Prize shall consist of the submission of a list of the books collected and entered for the Prize, together with an essay explaining the theme and significance of the collection.

The Prize shall be offered for competition each year and shall be open either to all resident undergraduate and graduate students in the University, or to resident undergraduate and graduate students in alternate years, at the discretion of the Library Syndicate.

Entries shall be submitted to the University Librarian so as to arrive not later than the first day of Full Lent Term (13 January 2009) and the Prize shall be awarded in the Easter Term.

The value of the Prize shall be a minimum of £500, but this sum shall be reviewed from time to time by the Library Syndicate.
