Have you seen the front cover of the RSC Publishing Catalogue?
This could be your library!
In 2011, we asked the librarian community to enter their library pictures into the RSC Publishing Catalogue front cover competition. This competition proved extremely popular – drawing entrants from countries across the globe including France, Lithuania, Slovenia, Spain, Tajikistan, South Africa, Turkey, UK and USA. Previous versions include:
- RSC Publishing Catalogue 2011 – RSC Library, London, UK
- RSC Publishing Catalogue 2012 – the George Peabody Library, Baltimore, Maryland, USA, taken by Norm Barker.
Steve Stich, from the Sheridan Libraries, of the Johns Hopkins University, USA won the 2011 Library Photograph Competition, voted for by 115 RSC staff and the RSC Library Advisory Board (entries can be seen on pages 2 – 5 of the 2012 Catalogue).
If you are interested in finding out about the next Library Photograph Competition, where your could be the winning Library featured on the front cover of the RSC Publishing Catalogue 2013, review the below instructions.

There are so many fantastic libraries in the world, whether architecturally, academically, historically or in terms of resources and support, so we’re really looking forward to the creative entries building on the success of last year. This competition will be judged by RSC, the RSC Library Advisory Board and the librarian community.
