Entries in either category are limited to English language publications that are available for individual purchase by the general public. Entries must be received on or before January 31, 2010. Official entry forms and rules are available at http://saroyanprize.stanford.edu.
Michael A. Keller, Stanford University Librarian noted “We are excited to once again be awarding The Saroyan Prize. The Saroyan archive is a gem in the Libraries' Special Collections department and we are thrilled to be able to honor Saroyan's legacy through the award.”

For more information on the topic of social networking, see Online social networking on campus : understanding what matters in student culture at Cubberley Library (also at the Jackson Business Lbrary). For further information, contact the Green Library Information Center.
