If anyone knows about any new books that should be in the TAMS Library, please feel free to contact the authors directly and ask then to donate a copy of the book to the TAMS Library.
Incidentally, Whitman Publishing just sent out a copy of Fred Reed's latest book "Abraham Lincoln - Beyond the American Icon" to the TAMS Library. I would like to congratulate Fred for his hard work on this wonderful book - and I am sure he is happy to finally have this tough task behind him. I would like to thank Whitman for their generosity in donating a copy of this book.
Finally, I would like to solicit everyone's support in helping me find books and catalogs that are eligible for this year's TAMS Literary Award completion - and the Mishler Cataloging Award. To be eligible for this year's award, the book / catalog must be published in 2012, and must be a completely new work on a specific topic, and the author must be a TAMS member. 2nd editions or reprints or catalogs on very general topics are NOT eligible.
Many of you must know about books that are eligible and deserving to be entered into the competition (which will be judged by at least 3 independent judges). I need suggestions.
I would even be willing to buy the books for the library - or sign up an author for membership in TAMS if they can donate a copy of their book.
