The Bibliographical Society of Canada (BSC) is pleased to announce that Ayla Morland has been nominated for the BSC-SbC’s Congress Graduate Student Merit Award, which includes a grant of $500. Ayla Morland is a recent graduate of the Master of Information program at the University of Toronto, where she will start her PhD program this fall. The Conference Committee were impressed by Morland’s intersectional approach to studying the library of Dr. Ursula Franklin. Ayla will present a paper at the BSC annual Conference, which will examine and analyze Franklin’s book collection through a feminist historiography lens.
Ayla will be invited to publish a revised, article-length version of her Conference paper in the Papers of the Bibliographical Society of Canada, subject to peer review.
