At the 2014 Award Luncheon, Heather MacNeil, General Editor, announced the following 2014 Archivaria Awards:

Archivaria is pleased to announce that Creighton Barrett has been awarded the Hugh A. Taylor Prize for 2014 for his article "Respect Which Fonds? Personal Archives and Family Businesses in Nova Scotia” in Archivaria 76 (Fall 2013). The citation reads: In an insightful and cogently argued article, Barrett draws upon other disciplines to introduce the concept of ‘work identity’ to address the application of archival principles to aggregations of records that document both personal and corporate entities.

Archivaria is pleased to announce that Jennifer Douglas has been awarded the W. Kaye Lamb Prize for 2014 for her article “What We Talk About When We Talk About Original Order in Writers’ Archives" in Archivaria 76 (Fall 2013). The citation reads: Douglas’ article is a fine combination of empirical research and clear theoretical reasoning that deepens our understanding of the challenges associated with original order, with implications that extend beyond writers’ archives.
