2014 Worldwide Books Award for Publications

Published 05/27/2014

The 2014 Worldwide Books Award for Publications was presented to Maryly Snow at the 42nd Annual Conference held in Washington, D.C., May 1-5. The award recognizes outstanding publications in print by individual ARLIS/NA members in the fields of librarianship or visual resources curatorship, and the arts. By recognizing special achievement in these areas this award acknowledges and encourages scholarly publication by the ARLIS/NA membership.

Snow is the editor of the book, California Society of Printmakers: One Hundred Years, 1913-2013, published in San Francisco by the California Society of Printmakers in 2013. The awards committee described the book as both beautiful and comprehensive. 

An honorable mention was awarded to Heather Slania for her article “Online Art Ephemera: Web Archiving at the National Museum of Women in the Arts," published in the Spring 2013 issue of Art Documentation.

A separate award, also generously funded by Worldwide Books, for an electronic resources publication was not awarded this year.
