THE BASIL STUART-STUBBS PRIZE
FOR OUTSTANDING SCHOLARLY BOOK ON BRITISH COLUMBIA
Established in memory of Basil Stuart-Stubbs (at right), this annual prize recognizes the best scholarly book published on a British Columbia topic by a Canadian author.
Sponsored by the University of British Columbia Library and Pacific BookWorld News Society, the award honours the exemplary career of Basil Stuart-Stubbs (1930-2012), who served as University Librarian at UBC for 17 years (1964-1981) and Director of the School of Library, Archival and Information Studies (1981-1992).
The winning author or editor(s) need not be currently associated with an institution of higher learning, but the content of the work must exhibit high standards of research, diligence and originality. The winning book can be published from anywhere in the world between January 2022 and December 2022. For more information about the prize and previous winners, visit: https://support.library.ubc.ca/giving/basilbookprize
Deadline for submissions is December 15th (or, if published later in the year, notification that it will arrive subsequently.) There is no entry fee. Applicants simply send three copies of the book for consideration.
The $3,500.00 prize will be presented by the UBC Library in 2023.
