The Popular Culture Association sponsors this prestigious award each year along with literary and film awards. This award recognizes the outstanding contribution of an academic database to the study of Popular Culture and American Culture developed within the past three years. Criteria will include use of hypertext/networking, use of supplementary/secondary materials, breadth of archived material, and ease of searching and updatability.
Award winners will be announced at the PCA Annual Conference in Philadelphia, PA, in April, 2020, and posted on the PCA website, on other appropriate websites, and in other media forums. Recipients need not be present at the conference to receive the award.
