Brenda McCallum Prize

Archives and Libraries Section

The Brenda McCallum Prize * AFS Archives and Libraries Section
Submissions Due: September 15, 2007
Award: $100

The Brenda McCallum Prize committee of the American Folklore Society
Archives and Libraries Section invites nominations for the 2007 Brenda
McCallum Prize.

The 2007 Prize Committee is composed of Marcia Segal, Kristi Young, and
Stephanie Smith.
Nominations are accepted continuously during the year, though the
deadline for submitting materials each year is September 15.
Presentation of the awards is given during the Archives and Libraries
Section meeting at the Annual meeting of the American Folklore Society
in October of that year.

Since 1994, this prize has honored the late folklife archivist Brenda
McCallum. Through this prize, the AFS Archives and Libraries Section
seeks to promote works that further the cause of the preservation,
organization, and dissemination of folklife collections. The prize is
given for an exceptional work dealing with folklife archives or the
collection, organization, and management of ethnographic materials. It
is awarded to an individual or an institution for noteworthy products or
documented activities that provide education, techniques, or services to
those who collect, organize, and preserve folklife materials, either on
the individual or institutional level. These may or may not be directly
associated with archival work, since products that facilitate the
organization of ethnographic materials collected in the field ultimately
assist the cause of folklife archivists as well. The prize may be
awarded for such accomplishments as a book, an article, the development
of a software package, or a lecture series.

In order to receive the McCallum Prize, the work should have been
created during the twelve months prior to the deadline for its
submission, or twenty-four months if it was not previously nominated.

Please submit nominations for the Prize by e-mail or fax, accompanied
by a brief explanation of why the work has been nominated.
