2017 Andrew T. Nadell Prize for Book Collecting

The Nadell Prize for Book Collecting is held every other year to promote the development of students’ personal libraries. The contest is named for Dr. Andrew T. Nadell M’74, who began collecting rare books when he was a student at Duke. The contest is open to all students enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate/professional degree program at Duke.

Members of the public are invited to a showing at which undergraduate and graduate student competitors will have selections from their collections on display and answer questions about the works they collect.

Winners of the contest will also be eligible to enter the National Collegiate Book Collecting Contest, where they will compete for a $2,500 prize and an invitation to the awards ceremony in Washington, D.C., at the Library of Congress.
