The American Association of Law Libraries (AALL) has been awarded a Certificate of Achievement for its World Wide Web site, AALLNET (www.aallnet.org) from the American Society of Association Executives (ASAE). The award comes from ASAE's Communications Section and its Gold Circle Awards, which annually presents honors in 22 areas for excellence in association communications and services. AALL and AALLNET will be recognized at a special ceremony for all Gold Circle Award winners to be held during ASAE's Management and Technology Conference, December 7-9, 1997 at the Baltimore Convention Center, Baltimore, Maryland.
The 1997 Gold Circle Awards were selected from 1,062 entries from 500 associations. AALLNET was selected for a Certificate of Achievement in its category along with Web sites produced by the Construction Specifications Institute and the Portland Cement Association. In naming AALLNET, created and maintained by webmaster Jason Hinkle, for this honor, the judges' comments cited its "nice directory, clean look; easy navigation," and "good use of forms and searches."

Today, with over 5,000 members, the Association represents law librarians and related professionals who are affiliated with a wide range of institutions: law firms; law schools; corporate legal departments; courts; and local, state and federal government agencies.
