In 2012 this publication reviewed the winners of international awards in mathematics with a detailed analysis of the Fields Medal (Meier 2012). In the four years since, there have been multiple mathematics prizes and awards of various renown with a particularly historic Fields Medal—the first female mathematician ever to be honored. In this article the focus will only be on recent winners of awards, but additional prizes in mathematics will be included. Librarians should follow mathematical awards in order to collect related materials and keep aware of trends in the field.
