Seminar: Book Collecting Contests as Outreach: Cultivating the Next Generation of Collectors and Donors

This seminar will focus on the ways in which book collecting contests serve as outreach tools, educational opportunities, donor relations events, and a means to cultivate the next generation of collectors. Learn about college and university book collecting contests and the National Collegiate Book Collecting Contest (NCBCC) and how to start or improve a contest at your own institution. The presenters will represent a range of perspectives on college and university contests and on the NCBCC and will describe their promotion and administration.
