For over 25 years the Book Arts Workshop has welcomed students, faculty, and community members to explore the world of book arts. To celebrate what is possible in the Book Arts Workshop, the Dartmouth College Library hosts a competition for the Book Arts Prize. Each Spring students and community members (faculty, staff and local residents) put forward their best work from the academic year for our judges to assess. These judges often have a tough time deciding among the fantastic works that have been produced. Whether the books, broadsides and other printed pieces came about as a class project or out of curiosity and fun, everyone enjoyed a chance to learn about printing and bookbinding and to work with their hands. The prize winning pieces are on display in the Treasure Room Hall of Baker-Berry Library and will remain through the 2018 fall term.

Spirituality, business, fiction, opinion, world politics, art, comedy, science…whatever your interest, it seems, there is a Dartmouth student-led publication for you. This great variety, and the students behind it, were on hand in Baker Main Hall [January 11] at the Student Publishing Fair, an event hosted by the Dartmouth College Library.
The publishing fair is one of several components of the Library’s experiential learning project, "Preparing students to be arbiters of new scholarship: Editing, reviewing, and publishing in the 21st century,” which received support through DCAL’s Experiential Learning Grant. The project is coordinated by Barbara DeFelice, Program Director for Scholarly Communication, Copyright, and Publishing and Laura Barrett, Director of Education & Outreach in the Dartmouth Library.
