Notes

2005: A substantial portion of Archivaria 55 (Spring 2003) comprised “Abstracts of Master of Archival Studies Theses at Canadian Universities.” Because the subsequent volume Archivaria 56 (Fall 2003) included the comprehensive index to Archivaria, for which the General Editor and Editorial Board granted a special W. Kaye Lamb prize to Heather MacNeil, the remaining articles from Volume 55 were considered as part of the eligible issues for the 2005 award.

2006: This was the year in which three issues of Archivaria, rather than the standard two, were published in order to return the journal to its production schedule and reflect changes in the Association’s accounting practices. Because the articles within Archivaria #59, “Québec’s Perspective on Archives,” had previously been published in other sources, the General Editor and Editorial Board did not consider this issue for the Lamb Prize.

2009:  With the removal of Archivaria 59 from prize contention in 2006, the schedule for awarding prizes became disrupted and so in order to bring the schedule back in line, and to allow the Editorial Board sufficient time to properly adjudicate on the articles, no prizes were awarded in 2009.  As a result, three issues were in contention for the 2010 prizes.
