The Prize was established with generous donations from Dr. Susan E. Parker, University Librarian, UBC; Dr. Sabina Magliocco, Professor, Department of Anthropology, and Chair of the Program in Religion, and the John William and Hannah and Roland Frank Whittaker Charitable Trust. The donors are passionate about research and learning and the importance of the Library as a critical resource in students’ academic and personal journey while at UBC.

Our goal is to endow this Prize with a total of $250,000. The endowed prized may be named in honor of someone. To discuss naming the endowment, please contact
