The Royal Society of Biology (England) has awarded their Postgraduate Textbook Prize to Curating Biocultural Collections: A Handbook, the first major curation manual for biocultural collections. HUH staff members Judy Warnement and Julie Shapiro were contributors to the book; Judy aided in a chapter entitled “Cataloguing and curation of ethnobiological books and archives” and Julie provided several photographs. The judges said: "A stunningly visual and engaging book with a crisp, clear and example rich style. It captivates the reader with its breadth of topics and range of examples, case studies and photographs."

Congratulations to all involved, and especially to our own Judy and Julie!
