The Awards Committee of the American Association of Law Libraries has selected two academic law libraries as recipients of the 2003 Law Library Publications Award for the useful and valuable library materials they created to help librarians, students and patrons.
The award for the print division was presented to Catholic University for The Catholic Dimensions of Legal Study: The Catholic University Law School Annotated Bibliography. The committee judged it to be well written and useful not only as a curriculum tool within a Catholic law school but also useful to demonstrate the interaction between a religious institution and legal education.
The Suffolk University Law School Library Maps was honored in the nonprint division. The committee found this resource valuable for reference librarians who are helping patrons or for patrons looking on their own. It is both easy and fun to use.
The Law Library Publications Awards honor achievement in creating in-house, user-oriented library materials that are outstanding in quality and significance. Creating in-house works may include but is not limited to writing, compiling or editing print or nonprint materials.
The award will be presented July 14 during the AALL 96th Annual Meeting and Conference in Seattle during the Association Luncheon.
