Each spring the library hosts a Juried Student Artists' Book Competition and Artist's Book Symposium. SCAD students from any location may enter up to three artists' books that were made within one year of the competition deadline. An outside juror selects three award winning books and may award honorable mentions as well as selecting entries to put on display in the Student Artist's Book Exhibit. Award winning books are purchased by the library and entered into the Artist's Book Collection.
The symposium is dedicated to the discussion and study of artists' books and typically includes several speakers, a free workshop for SCAD students, a reception, and a chance to handle all of the artists' books from the competition in a 'petting zoo' and viewer's choice voting opportunity.
