The Tarlton Law Library at the University of Texas School of Law in Austin is the recipient of the 2000 American Association of Law Libraries (AALL) Law Library Publications Awards. Established in 1997, the Law Library Publication Award honors achievement in creating in-house library materials that are outstanding in quality and significance. Both print and nonprint publications are recognized. The law library's Jamail Center for Legal Research Annual Report received the award in the print division. It provides a substantive review of library services, collections, and projects. The library's Jamail Center for Legal Research Web Site, available at http://www.law.utexas.edu, received the award in the nonprint division. This site offers extensive library and research information. The awards will be presented at the 93rd AALL Annual Meeting in Philadelphia, PA, July 15-20, 2000.
The American Association of law Libraries was founded in 1906 to promote and enhance the value of law libraries to the legal and public communities, to foster the profession of law librarianship, and to provide leadership in the field of legal information.
