To promote exhibitions of library and archival materials that contribute to or disseminate knowledge on any topic. To recognize outstanding printed exhibition catalogs and guides, and electronic exhibitions, produced by North America and Caribbean institutions. Submissions must be in English or multi-lingual with English as one of the languages. Although printed exhibition catalogs and guides must be associated with physical exhibitions, electronic exhibitions need not be.
